Parent page: CAMtastic Commands

The following pre-packaged resource, derived from this base command, is available:


Applied Parameters: None

Summary

This command is used to view Dcode and layer information for the current document. The information can be saved as a text file.

Access

This command is accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by choosing the Reports » Dcode/Layer Usage command from the main menus.

Use

After launching the command, the Dcode/Layer Report dialog will appear. The dialog is basically divided into two halves - one for Dcode information and one for layer information. The drop-down at the top of the dialog allows you to choose whether to display information for ALL layers (including layers not used in the document), ON Layers (only layers that are used), or individual layers.

The Dcode section of the dialog provides, for each Dcode, shape and size information and also usage, in terms of the number of flashes and draws.

The Layer section of the dialog provides, for each layer, extent information, and a breakdown of the number of flashes and draws contained thereon.

Clicking the Save button will generate an ASCII text file (Dcode-Layer.rpt), which contains the information from the dialog and is opened automatically as the active document in the main design window.

Tips

  1. To view exact Dcode usage information for a specific layer, select that layer's individual entry in the drop-down list at the top of the dialog.
  2. The report is generated and saved automatically in the \Users\<ProfileName>\AppData\Roaming\Altium\Altium NEXUS <GUID>\CAMtastic folder of your software installation. The report will appear in the Projects panel as a free document.
  3. All measurement information uses the current units for the workspace - either inches or millimeters. Units can be changed either from the CAMtastic panel, or the CAM Editor - Drawing Modes page of the Preferences dialog.
  4. Generating a new report will overwrite an existing report of the same name without warning.
