This post is about this pouring issue, another pouring issue and about pouring my frustration and why I will stop working with upverter after I have finished my latest quickfix.
Another issue related to the pouring is this:
Error: multiple polygons returned for shape outline eda.min-9ebb392b.gz.js:3105:335
Frustrations and why I am gonna stop using this tool (for starters I started using it mainly because of the simplicity of the tool and the fact that it looks descent, ui wise, compared to all the other tools. Especially in a HDPI monitor on linux, 9 out of 10 other tools are just horrible)
- There are hardly any good support/docs for this tool, you need some questions answered the forum is the place, but I haven’t found anything answered yet, so you always have to start a topic which is time consuming.
- There is this pouring issue (see this topic) which makes me go to firefox. But in Firefox none of the shortcut keys work which makes it unworkable too.
- It is slow, not just in Chrome, also in Firefox, which leads to my browser asking me all the time if I want to close the tab. I bought a Dell XPS 13 9630 couple of months ago, this is a pretty solid laptop that should surely be able to run this tool.
- Not remembering that I turned of the design rules when you switch between PCB and schematics, that is the one that triggers to always highlight the pour, frustrating…
- Loading time… sigh
- And my last item, which I will send you guys an email about, the concierge and verified parts is a lie, I just created a part for $30 just to found out that the pads in the Gerber where completely off! Unfortunately this wasn’t seen until I already let my manufacturer make a couple of boards.
- Keep asking me to rate it, every single time I log in.
We’re on a mission to make hardware less hard, is your mission statement, sure… Need a bit more work boys, I can hardly get a proper PCB out of it.
I’ve hardly got any parts on my board, and it already crashes and burns my laptop…
