Let's face it - mechanical layers are an important 'nuisance' in the design process. Getting everyone to use the layers consistently (or at all) is certainly half the battle; however, organizing the mechanical layers for documentation purposes can be another hassle altogether. All too often, we are constantly turning on and off layers to see what we need to see during the layout process.
It may surprise you that there are ways in most EDA tools to organize all layers so that viewing the different aspects of the design are practically instantaneous. We will demonstrate this concept in Altium Designer. We will also provide valuable collateral at the end of the video to use in your design tools.
