BackUse Rooms to control Component Orientations for Manufacturability

There are many situations where the manufacturing process calls for strict component orientation rules. One such example is when utilizing wave soldering techniques.

In this Design Secret Video, Application Engineer Michael Heil from our European support team shows us a really cool trick where we can use rooms to very specifically control the orientation of components within a region of the board that is to be wave soldered. This method can also be used for component placement and orientation control for other mechanical situations, so it's definitely a good one for the kit bag!
