I finally started trying to build something and discovered the 'cheap' 10cmX10cm boards from china have a long lead time measured in loss of interest. I started using OSAPark and wow, projects are flowing and my bank account hardly notices. I am running into new package types that DipTrace has no patterns or 3D images for, Maxim of course. They have a uSOP or uMAX that is a 3mm square 8 pin SOP with .65 pitch (DS18B20U+) - I created the pattern without much of an issue other than the fact Maxim does not reference the package drawing from the datasheet for the DS18B20U+.
My third attempt at finding a 3D image seems to work but it appears I'll be learning how to create 3D parts in the future. This project turned out to be too small to build for OSAPark, I had to panelize it:
And the Top:

I'm still learning, the copper pour gets me: Traces to nets that are tied to the ground or power plane are still there after a pour? Back to the Video tour!

If you are just a beginner with Diptrace, I must say this is really good. It took me weeks to get something half decent going :) I would love to make something like this: - Maybe in a couple more months. This university where I go to to take my adult education just got a Form2 printer. Looks effin sweeet!

Ditto with EricTheCode.
Don't worry about the appearance of traces within copper pours - that is just to show you where they are so they are still editable.
