[PCB_FORUM] Re: Metric to English - English to Metric

I guess we just work differently, Austin.  

I don't have any trouble routing to metric BGAS using mils.

Did you try Patrick's suggestion?

Hi George,

> WHY switch back and forth?

Some parts are metric, and others are imperial.  It is easier to route
metric BGAs on a metric grid, and then switch to an imperial grid when I get
out of the BGA and are routing to imperial parts.

> Why not just KEEP IT SIMPLE (K.I.S.S.) :)

Hum.  Well, to me, switching back and forth DOES keep it simple...that is if
switching back and forth was simple ;-)

Regards,

Austin
