    Hi everybody,
    Is there a way in Altium 6 to specify a routing rule which defines
    that a particular class of nets can be routed on a particular layer
    but not go over a certain area?
    It's like having a keepout but only for a certain class of nets.

    Thanks,
    Patrick
     
  2. Patrick,
    I am not sure that there is any easy way to define such an exclusion
    zone for a particular net class. The whole logic of Altium rules tends to be
    rules to allow actions rather than disallow. The only suggestion I could
    make would be to route those nets while placing some form of a keepout
    arrangement (fills, layer specific keepouts or polygon) in that particular
    area, later remove it or temporarily shift it to another or non-routing
    layer.

    Hi Brad,
    thanks again for the reply. I'll definitely take up your suggestion
    of routing the designing in 2 steps, first with the keepout and the
    net class in question and then removing the keepout to route the
    remainder of the nets. It should work nicely.

    Regards,
    Patrick
