ok.. first of all.. i am new. I do prototype at home, but now it time to get it on a computer and printed on PCB.

I have a few board containing Superflux Piranha LED. I'm not able to do it by Component Editor or Pattern Editor.

I got the WRL files for them, I found it on the forum.

It will help me A LOT if someone can do something for me.

I pratice myself doing my board with normal 5mm Led but it's not the final product that I really want.

thanks everyone to help a hobbyist.

Dom

Hi Dom,
You must be more specific about the component. To create a Pattern and Component you will need a datasheet. To find the datasheet, you will need the name of the manufacturer and the manufacturer's part number. Once you have retrieved a copy of the datasheet from the manufacturer's website, you can open up the DipTrace tutorial (Help > DipTrace Tutorial) and read the section entitled "Creating Libraries". This will be worth your time and effort as you will quickly become proficient at creating Patterns and Components in DipTrace. If you have any questions as you progress through the tutorial, there are many folks on this forum that can offer helpful hints and tips. Happy hunting and let us know how it turns out.

I'll try again, but if someon have it already done, it will save me a lot of effort to get my project done!

it's for these LED: the data sheet is on page 5

As a starting point, try using these dimensions when you create the pattern. I can't guarantee a proper fit or fire resistance using these numbers, so double check them against the official documentation. Launch the Pattern Editor and see if you can make something that would be more to your liking. Since the leads are rectangular, I used the formula ((X^2 + Y^2)^1/2) + 0.15mm to calculate the round-hole size for the pads. In this example pins 1 and 4 would be connected to the cathode, and pins 2 and 3 would be connected to the anode...

I have built a pattern and component for you.
You can find it here: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=10931
Use at your own risk!!

Sincerly,
Thanks everyone of you!
I promise that I will learn to do pattern and component, but for my actual project, it helps me a lot!!!
It's my first week doing pcb layout.
I've always wanted to do solidworks and autocad project.
But with my arduino starter kit, i found that i really like electronic projects!
I also order a raspberry pi starter kit flr home automation project

For me it's like going to school, in something I really like, at my rythm

:D

Dom
