Export IPC2581 error on silkscreen layer

msapack , 06-20-2019, 11:26 AM
I have a mechanical symbol on the silkscreen layer of my PCB as the company logo, but I am getting this error :

Collecting package defintions ...
WARNING: No PLACE_BOUND outline found for the package "LOGO_SYMBOL", IGNORED.
Collecting component descriptions ...
WARNING: No PLACE_BOUND outline found for the symbol located at (82.000, -33.000), (SymbolName="LOGO_SYMBOL"), IGNORED.

I followed the instructions on lesson 10 of the Learn Orcad and Allegro essentials and still got the same error with that method.

I tried putting a place boundary around the logo and it got rid of the error, but then created a 3d shape on the board that I do not want.
Please let me know what I can do to get rid of this error while not creating a 3d object.

I am not sure why it is doing ... but you may be able to specify 0mm height and 3D shape will not be shown?
