    Hi there i've been using multisim for ages and when i use the ultiboard program to import a netlist and design a single layer board things get ugly.
    I am able to place components or autoplace.. but when it gets to routing the autorouter refuses to run or just doesnt route a single trace.

    Sometimes i can get it to route on the top layer of a double sided board, sometimes it does nothing....

    I am at the end of the line with this program and i've read the user manual and have not come to any solution?

    Is there anybody here who can help me :(

    thanks in advance, steve

    p.s. my teacher sucks at ultiboard too :)

    This may not be useful in your case, but I think it's worth mentioning. Autorouters suck! And autoplacers are even worst...

    Unless your board has tens of thousands of connections, you should be manually routing. It doesn't take very long to do, I just finished an 850+ component and several thousand connection PCB in a week, all manual :D
