Winter newsletter

A roundup of changes and improvements to Quilter throughout the late fall and early winter.

Quilter's traces are now octilinear by default.

1/ Octilinear Traces

In our last newsletter, we asked users to share theirfeedback on the visual appearance of Quilter's "curvy" traces. The response was clear – users said our curvy traces looked "messy" and "wrong" because they lacked the octilinear (45/90 deg) routing style of human-designed traces.

We're happy to share that Quilter now utilizes octilinear trace routing for all generic traces routed by our design agent. Try resubmitting a board designed prior to November to see the difference on your own design!

First it is thin, then it is thick!

2/ Thin-to-thick traces

As of late December, Quilter's design agent has the ability to route traces with variable widths. This allows Quilter to better route power traces with minimum amperage requirements that terminate with fine-pitched ICs and connectors.

Post, comment, learn, and more!
