Can't route between Flex and Rigid regions

Created: June 1, 2022 | Updated: June 1, 2022

If you are unable to route a trace between a rigid region and a flex region, there is probably a Board Outline Clearance rule with a Split Continuation value set to anything other than 0, which is causing the split line to be treated as an obstacle.

Starting in Version: 18.0
Up to Version: Current

Solution Details

To overcome this issue, you will need to revise your Board Outline Clearance rule.  From the menu bar, use Design Rules, then, in the left pane, expand Design Rules Manufacturing Board Outline Clearance BoardOutlineClearance, and set "0" along the (bottom) row Split Continuation for the Track column, to specify the clearance between the Split Continuation and the track as 0.
