How can i get more precision in Proteus design area grid dimension for up to 0.01 mm or any custom value? Answered

I am trying to implement a design with an IoT Gateway using CC3000 from TI in my PCB design and I am using Proteus as an EDA environment for this. The problem i am facing is with snap to grid precision which is only up to 0.1 mm available in Proteus and component footprint for CC3000 has many dimensions that requires 0.01 mm precision. How can i implement more precise snap to grid custom dimensions for my project?

Use CIRCAD o.000001 mm

Regrettably I do not know.

How long have you used Proteus ?

i am not a continuous user of Proteus however using it from more then 2 years and didn't ever need before for such a scale development for SMD purpose.

In CIRCAD after opening a project file the designer goes to Setup, Parameters and Units to select grid snap table lists like 1.0mm, 0.5mm, 0.1mm, 0.05mm, 0.025mm, 0.01mm for SMD layout.


I would expect any major package to have a similar ability.

There are packages that make you buy the ability to do this.
