This rule checks that components are located on correct layers. It can be used to verify that country, company, or project specific layer agreements are followed.
Running this rule with the default values does not give useful results; this rule has to be configured before use.
The rule parameters are:
This table contains the relation between Component, Construction Type, and their required layer. If the Construction Type cell is left empty in a row, it is interpreted so that all components of the given Component Type should reside on the given layer.
You can also use wildcards in the Construction Type column, so that you don't need to add a row for each Construction Type.
Note that you can read information to this table also from Excel. Go to the root ruleset and select the “Allowed Construction Types and Layers” tab in the Parameters view.
Check Space Groups:
When this parameter is checked, the rule checks also space groups. The parameter is disabled, if none of the Component Types in the Allowed Layers table is Space.
Analysing the results:
The checking results are categorized by Component Type and Construction Type. There are three kinds of issues:
Wrong Layer: Component is located on a layer that is differs from the one specified in the Allowed Layers list.
Unknown Layer: Component layer is not listed in the Allowed Layers table.
No Layer: The component has no layer information.
The rule creates a report about used layers. The report contains columns for layer name, component type, construction type and number of specified components in the specified layer.
The rule does not have any tools.
