Acid traps looks for copper areas in your design that may not etch correctly.  The problem that occurs with acid traps is that your circuit may over-etch or under-etch causing a potential for shorts and/or other failures.

To have FAB 3000 search for Acid Traps, please go to the DFM Rules Management and check "Acid Traps" (located in the signal tab).
