Hi All,
today i downloaded the new Eagle version 8.1.0 and i tested the new function obstacle - routing...
Hm,,, attached the video i created shows that the cornered wire works, but the rounded wire doesn't.

And if i switch to Follow Me routing, happens that the wire stuck at the last moved point.

Is this routing so correct, or is there a bug in the software?

Best Regards,
Gerald

Hi Gerald,

This is correct, for the time being rounded wires do not benefit from
the obstacle avoidance mechanism. This will be introduced in future release.

Not 100% sure what your are referring to here. The follow-me engine is
separate from the Obstacle avoidance engine so the follow-me router will
not behave like the Obstacle avoidance mechanism. In your video I saw
that the follow me continued to work and adjust to your mouse position
so I'm not entirely clear what you are referring to. Could you clarify?

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

Best Regards,
Jorge Garcia

Hi Jorge,
ok..

I just tested what works what not.
ok.... With the <S - wire button> the Obstacle avoidance works also but the wire are not curved, the wire are an octet.
Then, the bottom layer works other then the top layer - I've tested it in the free version.

At the 1:28 min during rounded wire routing i stopped and i drew a "?" on the screen as a question, that was the question for you about correctness.

At the 1:50 min I wanted to switch to "Follow-me", but I switched to a cornered wire before, and then I changed to "Follow-me" because
I wanted to see what can happen by one of a Corner- to a "Follow me" routing.
At this moment at top on the board, you can see that, the wire was frozen at the last mouse position, then simply I have routed just below on the board.
And, after brake, the false wire on top of the board was manifested.
Also this, i think that is not correct, freezing wires wherever.

I'll look for more and I'll test more functions.

Best Regards,
Gerald

Hi Gerald,

I've watched the video a few times, but I still don't follow what you
are reporting for minutes 1:28 and 1:50.

The resolution on the video is a little low, but more than likely I'm
just not getting it.

Could you elaborate a bit more?

Best Regards,
Jorge Garcia
