History of OrCad pcb layout software

  1. Jul 5, 2012 #1
    I worked with OrCad pcb layout 9.2 and older for many years. Lately I try to download the evaluation software and it looks totally different. They don't even use .MAX anymore.

    When did they change over? Any way to translate the old .MAX to the new software?

    I so wish they kept the same format instead of changing it totally as I worked with the old software for years and know it inside out.

    Anyone know what is the limitation of the OrCad 16.5 Lite? Can you generate a gerber file? How complex a board can you do on the Lite version?
