Summary

A Draftsman Board Assembly View is an automated graphic composite of the active PCB project's board outline, cutouts, holes, and component graphics with additional notation. Its drawing representation, included information and data sources are all configurable in the Properties panel.

Availability

Board Assembly Views are available for placement in a PCB project Draftsman document from the Draftsman Editor as follows:

  • Choose the Place » Board Assembly View command from the main menus (Place Board Assembly View).
  • Click the button on the Active Bar located at the top of the workspace.
  • Right-click in the drawing workspace then select Place » Board Assembly View from the context menu.
  • Click the  entry on the Drawing Views toolbar (View » Toolbars » Drawing Views to enable).

Placement

After launching the command, drawing data is retrieved from the source PCB file, the cursor will change to a cross-hair and the rendered Assembly View is attached to the cursor. Move the cursor to the desired position then click to confirm the placement.

Note that drawing data is retrieved from the PCB document specified in the Source section of the Properties panel when in Document Options mode. To change the panel to that mode, deselect all objects in the workspace (click in free space).

Graphical Editing

Both the position and size of placed Assembly View may be graphically modified.

A selected Assembly View will show a node handle at the top right of the selection outline, which can be dragged to a new location to modify the view's size. To move an Assembly View, drag and drop it to a new location.

Drag a selected Assembly View's resize node change its scale.

The position of component Designators also can be graphically modified by dragging and dropping the text to a new location. Hold the Ctrl key while dragging then use the Space bar to rotate the Designator through 90° increments.

The default settings for the Board Assembly View are available in the Draftsman - Defaults page of the Preferences dialog.
