block function for topaz | 30 September, 2008

I have a block programmed and i want the machine to just do one block at a time instead of doing the whole panel (each panel has 56 PCBs) at once and skipping around. how would i do that? thanks in advance steven

If you have your panel programmed as blocks (as opposed to expanded) two quick ways come to mind: 1. either use block badmarks to mark those blocks that you want to skip or 2. goto Block Repeat Info and mark and set the block that you want to skip as 'skip'. But if you have your panel programmed as 'expanded' I'm afraid there is no other way than to re-program the panel using blocks.

1) Is it possible that there is another program for the board w/o without the block conversion? Renaming instead of copying the file to a new name is one mistake I won't make again!

2) Are there "notes" in the last column of the placement data? If there are I believe you can convert it back to a block by block assembly.
