Importing ODB++ from Altium. Components look like HUGE square shapes.

      I have attempted to import two different boards into Siwave, from two completely different sources and the error looks the same with either board. The best way to describe the problem is to show what the board looks like in Camtasia and then show what it looks like in Siwave. It has to do with how the components are imported.

      I do not know what the issue is.

      Thank You

      Please see the video link below and follow the same steps as shown in the video to import ODB++ file into SIwave.

    Another option here is to use the Altium EDB Exporter instead of ODB++ to get the geometry into SIwave. EDB is the Ansys internal layout file format and usually is has fewer issues than ODB++. Here is Altium's doc on how to enable that feature:

    Your suggestion seems to have worked.
