To all that feel KiCAD is the an...

So CM 'Styles' as well as a means to draw areas for the different 'Styles'. One example would be the center pad that requires thermal relie...

Re: DipTrace 4.0 beta

Is there a date on beta 3 or the release date? Development was slowed down due to COVID-19 quarantine, but I hope we will do all within April. Can do right now, but without teardrops (some tweaks require complex shape-based algorithms there). Take your time, throw in the align by pitch space thing ...

JST issues with Documentation

While working on a S4B-ZR-SM4A-TF, 4 pin 1.5mm pitch side entry SMT connector I found the 3D image provided from JST did not match the devices documentation. I adjusted the two anchor pads to match the 3D image. Is it just me? Attached is jst-testing.lib, jstZH.pdf and ZH.STEP 3D image. ZH-Farce.jpg...

Re: Import PAD fails

The Eagle files from CUI were good, I tried PADs then Altium but they didn't work. I just checked out Ultra Librarian and it does Eagle without errors, I think the one I had issues with was SnapEDA, but I've been on a part building binge trying to get a project out the door. The pattern from CUI had...
