Yeah, kind of. I expect the autorouter to either fail, or do a crappy
job - it's more about how bad a job it does. E.g. if I rotate this chip,
does it get better or worse? If I straddle this DIP chip across that
connector, does it go haywire? I could spend an hour trying to route it
myself, or I can get feedback from the autorouter in 30 seconds. If I
was more experienced I'm sure I'd have more of a feel for it, but as an
amateur it's a great crutch to lean on.
