Pick and Place Export: I'm stumped

Hello, Thanks in advance for any help... I am having a very bad time figuring out how to associate the proper fields to export the pick and place (PNP) file. For instance, I have fields, "Mid X" and "Mid Y" that correspond to the X and Y coordinates of the component. How, and where, do I associate t...

Re: My footprint library - rounded pads

Hi d1wang, I appreciate that you took the time to generate these footprints, however, I would suggest you look up some white papers on how pad shape defines the surface tension of the resulting melted solder shape. A rectangular pad will result in surface tension of the solder to "pull" the pad to t...

NOT A "BUG", BUT WOULD LIKE SOME INSIGHT - BEHIND THE SCENES

Hi, As I've been using Diptrace (which, let me say right now, I think DIPTRACE is progressively getting better and as soon as I can afford to update to the $1000 version I will) I've been noticing a few "behind the scenes" things that I would like some explanation of so that mistakes are not made. I...

FILE/SCHEMATIC MISSING FROM DIRECTORY/FOLDER

Hi, This has me completely freaked out as one can imagine. I'm working on a design in which there are four PCB's that mate together through header: mother/daughter board design. I've been working on these for weeks; I sent out all the GERBERS for the design last week. Today I go to open the schemati...

Duplicate Part Tab in Component Editor

Hi, The subject line pretty much sums it up; the ability to duplicate a TAB in Component Editor. For instance, I have a custom LED schematic symbol that I'd like to duplicate. Currently one makes a new tab, then copies/pastes the symbol from one tab page to the other. This doesn't always work in tha...

Silkscreen missing from footprint

Hello, I created a surface mount pad within Pattern Editor with a large pad (0.75") and an overlay of silkscreen (top layer) of 1". When I use that pad within PCB Layout, the silkscreen pad is missing. The text for the pads show up (TP1, TP2, etc.) but not the large silkscreen pad. I went so far as ...

Re: 3D render - and file export

It's a schematic capture and PCB layout program; the STEP files are accurate for what they're there for; checking mechanicals in a design. VRML is for making pretty pictures in a graphics program, all of which can be manipulated there. "Specular" etc. can all be set to whatever you want in a render ...
