Variable Documentation

◆ CompactFileSave

const wxChar AC_KEYS::CompactFileSave[] = wxT( "CompactSave" )
static

When set to true, this will wrap polygon point sets at 4 points per line rather than a single point per line.

Single point per line helps with version control systems

Referenced by ADVANCED_CFG::loadSettings().

◆ CoroutineStackSize

const wxChar AC_KEYS::CoroutineStackSize[] = wxT( "CoroutineStackSize" )
static

Configure the coroutine stack size in bytes.

This should be allocated in multiples of the system page size (n*4096 is generally safe)

Definition at line 95 of file advanced_config.cpp.

◆ DrawArcAccuracy

const wxChar AC_KEYS::DrawArcAccuracy[] = wxT( "DrawArcAccuracy" )
static

For drawsegments - arcs.

Distance from an arc end point and the estimated end point, when rotating from the start point to the end point. 0 will not allow any approximate result, and the arc will not show. Squared value for performances, in system unit.

◆ DrawArcCenterStartEndMaxAngle

const wxChar AC_KEYS::DrawArcCenterStartEndMaxAngle[] = wxT( "DrawArcCenterStartEndMaxAngle" )
static

For drawsegments - arcs.

When drawing an arc, the angle ( center - start ) - ( start - end ), can be limited to avoid extremely high radii. The value is the tan( angle )

◆ DRCEpsilon

const wxChar AC_KEYS::DRCEpsilon[] = wxT( "DRCEpsilon" )
static

A fudge factor for DRC.

Required to prevent false positives due to rounding errors, errors in polygonalization, etc. Previous versions hard-coded various values from 0.000005mm to 0.002mm.

Definition at line 75 of file advanced_config.cpp.

◆ ExtraFillMargin

const wxChar AC_KEYS::ExtraFillMargin[] = wxT( "ExtraFillMargin" )
static

When filling zones, we add an extra amount of clearance to each zone to ensure that rounding errors do not overrun minimum clearance distances.

This is the extra in mm.

Definition at line 68 of file advanced_config.cpp.

◆ HoleWallThickness

const wxChar AC_KEYS::HoleWallThickness[] = wxT( "HoleWallPlatingThickness" )
static

Used to calculate the actual hole size from the finish hole size.

IPC-6012 says 0.015-0.018mm; Cadence says at least 0.020mm for a Class 2 board and at least 0.025mm for Class 3.

◆ MinPlotPenWidth

const wxChar AC_KEYS::MinPlotPenWidth[] = wxT( "MinPlotPenWidth" )
static

Absolute minimum pen width to send to the plotter.

PDF seems happy enough with 0.0212mm (which equates to 1px @ 1200dpi).

◆ PluginAltiumSch

const wxChar AC_KEYS::PluginAltiumSch[] = wxT( "PluginAltiumSch" )
static

When true, enable Altium Schematic import (*.SchDoc)

Definition at line 133 of file advanced_config.cpp.

Referenced by ADVANCED_CFG::loadSettings().

◆ RealtimeConnectivity

const wxChar AC_KEYS::RealtimeConnectivity[] = wxT( "RealtimeConnectivity" )
static

Testing mode for new connectivity algorithm.

Setting this to on will cause all modifications to the netlist to be recalculated on the fly. This may be slower than the standard process at the moment

Definition at line 89 of file advanced_config.cpp.

Referenced by ADVANCED_CFG::loadSettings().

◆ ShowRouterDebugGraphics

const wxChar AC_KEYS::ShowRouterDebugGraphics[] = wxT( "ShowRouterDebugGraphics" )
static

Show PNS router debug graphics while routing.

Definition at line 100 of file advanced_config.cpp.

Referenced by ADVANCED_CFG::loadSettings().

◆ StrokeTriangulation

const wxChar AC_KEYS::StrokeTriangulation[] = wxT( "StrokeTriangulation" )
static

When true, GAL will stroke the triangulations (only used in OpenGL) with a visible color.
