In this video, learn how to add, edit, and customize grids and units. Learn how to add a new Cartesian grid as well as a polar grid.
- [Instructor] So, one of the first things…you'll want to set up correctly…when starting off your PCB Board designs…is to make sure that your units and your grids…are correctly set up for your project.…So let's take a look at this project initially.…Doesn't look like there's even any grid at all.…Actually, if I zoom in a little bit here,…I can see that, in fact, there is a grid…with some dots and some lines here…as I zoom in further and further.…
So the reasoning behind that is just that my grid…is fairly small, compared to my entire board size here.…If I want to change that really quickly,…I can just hit the G key for grid…and I can change my grid size.…I believe right now it's at five millimeter.…I want to change that to 100 mill…so the grid size will be a little bit larger…and between grid steps will be larger.…And now, I can see those dots and those spaces…coming in much larger…so just for placing components now,…it will be spaced 100 mill apart…instead of say, five mill apart.…
Let's say I want to customize my grids…
