Problem with Net wires for Power

Mdrolet , 07-15-2016, 03:26 PM
I have been taking the "Design your own board" course and I'm at the part where we are placing the components onto the PCB. The schematic contains three different Power ports (3V3, 5V/3V3, and 5V), but for some reason every component I place on the board is connected to 3V3. For example, you can see in the picture that C2 is connected to 5V in the schematic, but the corresponding component is connected to 3V3 on the board. I recompiled the project many times, and I get the error message as shown:

Nets Wire +3V3 has multiple names (Power Object +3V3,Power Object +3V3,Power Object +3V3,Power Object +5V,Power Object +5V,Power Object +5V,Power Object +5V,Power Object +5V,Power Object +5V,Power Object +5V/3V3,Power Object +5V/3V3,Power Object +5V/3V3.....").

I noticed in the Navigator panel that 3V3 is global (not sure if that has anything to do with it), and I couldn't find any Nets labeled +5V or +5V/+3V3 in the panel. I spoke with a man from technical support at Altium and we were unable to figure out the issue. Any idea why this is happening? Thanks.

You may have a short circuit somewhere in your schematic (+5V and +3V3 placed on the same net). Please, could you take a screenshot of your schematic page or print it to PDF and attach here?

Yes, here is my schematic

JP4, there it is

BTW, I like the blue components, they look very nice.

Thank you! I thought it added a nice touch.

And did fixing the JP4 connection help?

Yes, it worked great! I recompiled with no errors. Is there a way to now update the components on the PCB?

Disregard - I imported changes and everything looks good.
