    Maybe you have the Top and Botom layer disabled? They are unchecked in Layers setting.JPG

    Well that means that at least you don't have free hanging objects with no net assigned.

    You missed the And between the two queries. Just copy and paste:

    IsElectrical And (Net = 'No Net')

    It will be good if you can send me the PCB or a sample PCB illustrating the problem so I can take a look.

    As I previously said - you can visualise the unrouted connections from the menu (top bar) View - Connections - Show All.

    In Altium the rat nest indeed shows only the un-routed nets, that is it's purpose. I can't quite understand what is the white track in your Cam viewer, I don't remember seeing such. If you have any random tracks laying around and you have your rules set currently, it should become obvious during DRC (make sure your Net Antennae rule is also enabled). Apart from that when you are checking the layout, layer by layer, normally it's not hard to notice such random tracks.

    You can also try using filter queries to find some tracks/objects that are not connected to anything. For example try:

    IsElectrical And (Net = 'No Net')

    thank you,

    in show connections it is not clearly observing, in some programs, we will have rat nets which will show only unrouted nets.
    1) i want like that it should display only unrouted nets.
    2) when i m re drawing traces, sometimes some un wanted traces remains like i should in the pic, the trace in white color is the unwanted trace.

    I agree with mairomaster. Normally there should not be any "unwanted" tracks. Please could you clarify what are these? "Unwanted" tracks are normally automatically removed by Altium (loop removal function).

    You can visualise the unrouted connections from View - Connections - Show All. Also with the design rule check (DRC) you have a rule about unrouted nets - it will give you errors if you have any unrouted nets.

    I don't understand what you mean by unwanted tracks? It is not very clear from the screenshot. Which track are unwanted and why? Why did you place them in a first place?

    Clearing unwanted traces



    After the completion of routing how to find what are the nets i left unrouted ?!.. and i have generated odb++ file got the camfile below screen shot .

    now i have to remove unwanted tracks in the pcb. in cam files it is showing but how to go to pcb and remove it. in this cam i m able to see the place where unwanted traces and voile-ted tracks but how could i remove in pcb. they are nearly 1000 traces like that, it is very difficult to remove one by one checking in cam file again coming to pcb re drawing it. its taking more and more time .

    please can you guide me through this process.

    thanks in advance.
