DIN Rail Connector

Hi DipTracers, I am trying to draw a schematic to document a machine built using DIN rail connectors. I have attached a photo of the style of connector used. DIN Rail Connectors.jpg These connectors have a screw terminal on each side for joining wires together. The red bar in the middle is inserted ...

Re: PCB Layout editor - Hide Silk Drawings

I agree. Not being able to turn off the silk screen for a part with editing the pattern is a waste of time. I run into this issue on nearly every board.

+1 on the resizable windows as well.

Re: Can you have more than 1 3D model in a pattern

Thanks Tom, I kind of expected that but wanted to be sure. It seems that being able to create assemblies would be a useful addition to DipTrace but I'm not sure how much work it would be to implement. Thanks for your kind offer of the Littelfuse model. I've switched to a Schurter part and have a goo...

Can you have more than 1 3D model in a pattern

Hi All, I'm new to Diptrace and struggling with some of the basics of creating new parts. I'm trying to create a part for a fuse holder that uses 2 fuse clips, 1 clip at each end of the fuse. The pattern is easy, just add the holes for the clips the correct distance apart. I have a 3D model of the c...
