To export Fabmaster "extraction script" from the Allegro software you need to download and run the skill file script to extract the Fabmaster "extraction script" CAD data. The licensed Cadence Allegro user can go to "Sourcelink" on the Cadence website and download the Fabmaster skill file to extract Fabmaster "extraction script" CAD data. The skill file should contain information on how it should be run. The resultant Fabmaster "extraction script" CAD file created can be imported into the Unisoft software. To import the file you can use the SMART OPEN feature in the Unisoft software and the PCB assemblywill be displayed. The other option to import the file is to make sure the file name is .FAB then start the Unisoft software and click the main FILE menu then select OPEN and select the directory where the .FAB file is located. Next click the pull down menu next to "LIST FILE TYPES" and select "FabMaster Files (*.FAB)" then select the .FAB file and click OPEN and the PCB assemblywill be displayed.
There is also a full sample of this CAD file on your installation directory of the Unisoft software and by default it would be c:\program files\unisoft\cad-import-file-samples-etc\sample_protel.pro or c:\program files(x86)\unisoft\cad-import-file-samples-etc\sample_protel.pro.
I'm testing Protel because we will perhaps buy several CAD stations.Results so far:- Protel in't really a complete integrated suite, merely an assortment ofdifferent programs that use the same gui. The interface between the schematics and the layout module is clumsy in my opinion. Forth and back annotation is complicated compared to other ecad systems.- Protel produces sometimes protections faults. Some are reproduceable, some not. This was a big Problem with SP1 and has gone better with SP5 but it'sstill a problem. It seems that protel catches the faults somehow, because it doesn't crash, but there are orphan processes in the task list afterwards.- Protel has memory leaks.- Some other problems that I don't remember.Am I the only one who doesn't like protel?

Sent: Tuesday, October 10, 2000 11:37 PMTo: hel...@protel.comSubject: Attn: Colby SeimerDear Colby:I can't begin to express how disappointed and frustrated I am with Protel98SE. Before I elaborate on this, I would also like to convey my distastefor the comments from Scott, "This sounds like a Windows 2000 problem." Thatis such an over stated and unsubstanciated excuse and I would expect to hearthat from a street-corner computer vendor, not the engineering and technicalsupport division of Protel. Windows 2000 is touted as a signifigantimprovement over NT 4.0, is widely recognized as a leading industrystandard, and is certainly one of the most stable applications developed byMicrosoft. Almost 1 year has past since I started to use Windows 2000 for myindustrial designs, and with the exception of a shortage of 3rd partydrivers (that was short lived), Windows 2000 continues to serve me well withCAD and modeling software. Now down to business:If you read down the documentation, you will note that I did reformat andfresh install of Windows 2000 and Protel. All worked fine with exception ofthe peculiar behavior of the print/preview. After receiving your e-mail ofOctober 5, I decided that this should not be a hinderance.Over the past 5 days, I was required to move on to other agendas while atthe same time, casually putting my system back together. I run a ratherbenign setup, Pentium III 500, 128mb, 52gb, scanner, CD-R, ADSL, CalCompTablet, etc. My aplications are pretty much out-of-the-box. They includeOffice 2000, 3D Studio Max, AutoCad 2000, CR-R recording software,etc. Thereis nothing obscure about this setup other than it runs excellent with myapplications, never lets me down and never crashes. All my drivers and BIOSare up to date as well as any application compatibility updates and servicepacks from Microsoft.Tonight I sat down and fired up Protel for the first time since I receivedyour e-mail below. I opened up the PCBOARD1 file from the auto-route folder,the last file I had opened previously, After a few seconds of "Scanningdesign documents", the computer shut down and restarted on its own. This wasthe same problem I had when I tried to print/preview before I reformattedand reinstalled Windows 2000. The information on this is at the very end ofthis e-mail.I then restarted Protel, and instead of opening a PCB document that camewith Protel, I captured a small 555 timer circuit, created the net list,updated the PCB and then went to print/preview. Once again, the computerrebooted on its own - right back to the original problem!So Colby, here I am with what looks like a fantastic piece of software thatdoes not behave well. I discovered many unfavourable comments about thestability of Protel in the sci.electronics.cad and alsosci.electronics.design newsgroups. I then had the pleasure of stumblingacross Chris Morris, a former employee of Protel. Through correspondencewith Chris, I drew a conclusion that maybe the problem is not with my systemor with Windows 2000.Colby, I am going to venture to guess that the problem I am experiencing isnot the first time Protel has heard of this. I would like to give everyeffort to seeing the program fill my needs for several large contracts Ihave on the table right now. My efforts are contingent on the success of youand your staff getting me up and running and addressing some of anomaliesthat might be present.Are there issues I should be aware of? For example, does Protel behave withUSB devices or SCSI/RAID Host controllers? Are there certain ExecutiveServices that other programs are dependant on that might conflict withProtel? Has there been a conflict with 3rd party WinAspi drivers and theWinAspi Layer?I thank you for your time and look forward to your reply.
Don't be. But there are some precautions that it might be good totake.First of all, there are thousands of Protel users who are not seeingthe reported problem.Secondly, it is not unusual to hear reports of system crashes whileProtel is operating. Users have very often found that these problemsdisappeared with a different video card. Some cards apparently havebugs; in the case of an ATI card that was apparently causing problemsfor me, I found an indication on the ATI site that there was a knownbug that could produce the kind of error messages I was seeing. Ibought a Matrox Millenium card and the problem disappeared.Protel very seriously exercises the video system, it appears, but notnecessarily in the same way as other video-intensive applications. Idid, in fact, have problems with other applications, but they wererare.I also had other problems eventually traced to a sound card. I pulledthe sound card, no more problems.Again, most users don't have any problem like this at all. So:Install the Protel 99SE demo with no other unnecessary programsrunning, so that if you experience a crash, you won't lose data. Theninstall service pack 5, available by download. See if Protel runswithout problem. Most likely it will.But if it doesn't work, try borrowing a different video card. It'sgood to check with the Protel User Group mailing list about what cardswork well with Protel.About the mailing list, don't leave home without it! :-)Any sophisticated CAD program will have anomalies that will puzzlenewcomers. It's fine to try to find your own way around, but don't letit get to the point that you are beating your head against the wall.Ask, and you will generally find that there is something obvious thatyou simply overlooked.To join the user group mailing list -- and demo users are welcome --go to www.techservinc.com and follow the "Protel Users" link.
