Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.
Post subject: PowerPCB? 1 design in 2 PowerPCB editing ??? Posted: Wed Nov 09, 2005 1:33 am
If I had one PCB design and wanted to give two people to edit (one person editing left hand side part, another person editing righ hand side part), after they finished their parts, how could I combine these two edited PCB file into one finially in the PowerPCB? Moreover, what could I set it in the PowerPCB before edition for final combination?

What I would do before moving to such PCB layout is to make a hierarchical schematics that will detail all the connections between the various blocks and by this minimized the chances for mistakes. In addition both the PCB layouts would have to contain the same number of layers and layer structure and maintain the same guidelines and DRC settings.
One of my recent PCB layout was done by more than 1 person (both on the same board one was doing the digital and the other the RF) if you don't keep these guidelines it can be prone to errors that can result in another spin of PCB layout. I haven't done that on PowerPCB but these guidelines are general and of course can match to any PCB layout tool!
