Pin Grid TGA

Post by SLucey »

Can someone attach the pin grid .tga file please. Can't seem to find it anywhere.

BTW, I'm sure at some point others have wondered this: Why didn't the APCD designers include the Green Analyzer as a tool in the APCD?

Hi SLucey...

I created a pin grid with a lot more pin-placement options than the one I originally saw. Each of the 3 colors (black - red - blue) contain almost 400 pin placements. Just apply it to each green, create a temporary planar for each one, and adjust them until the grid covers the surfaces where pins would be placed.

Hope that helped,

Dan

Andy. If others like this grid, perhaps you can add it to the file download page...
