How to repeate layout for all modules?

I have the same OPAMP circuit with resistors, capacitors and diodes about 10 times on my PCB. Is there a way to easily multiply it in the schematic (at the moment I created a module and copied it 10 times) and then layout one module and copy the layout of this circuit to all other modules of the same type? The equivalent features in Altium Designer would be multichannel design and rooms. And can these groups after layouting them be distributed with the arrange tool?

Hi @jason_frauchigerWC7YH,


I hope you're doing well. If the layout must be preserved then you are better off using design blocks or insert Electronic Design. So what you would do is you would lay out one instance of the circuit as it's own board/schematic pair.


Then you can insert it into your main design 10 times. The different insertions are flat, in other words they don't stay grouped after they are placed so you won't be able to use the arrange command to distribute them. You will still need to distribute them manually.


Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.
