  • Advanced Layout Activities

    Hi robertferanec
    I started the advanced layout course. I have the following questions if you can answer them plz.
    1. I downloaded the activities files and if I have to place everything from scratch or if I want to create a new project by just copying schematics. I can't import components from schematic to PCB because no libraries are available.
    2. If I follow those activities folders then they already have component placement so what I am supposed to do to create a completely new project to participate in the course activities.

    Hi allee.khaan
    1. You can create libraries from existing project: Altium - How to Create Library from Existing Project - Step by Step Tutorial
    2. What activity specifically are you asking about? The components should be placed outside of the PCB, there should not be need to import them.

      Hi robertferanec
      Thanks for the reply.
      First of all, I want to import everything from scratch to the PCB because I want to create a new project by using the schematics available. Now if explore activity folders, you already did all those steps to teach us. So I was a bit confused about how to start or participate in the activities.

        Hi allee.khaan you can work directly in these folders and files. They are specially prepared for the activities - so you can open them and use them to do the activity from the course.

        PS: Doing it from scratch would take you a lot of time. This specific project took hundreds of hours to finish:
