Re: Does this "easy" tool even work??

Rick, Thanks for the info. I was indeed using the Diptrace version as it made sense to do so. :P The library loader gave me the most trouble with ASC or ASCII files. I am glad I am not the only one and this info will actually try again. I renewed my Fusion 360 hobby user (free) license so I could ma...

Re: Copper pour errors

:lol: At ease everybody! :lol: I figured it out. I started a new project, added a board outline, then added a copper pour. It didn't work. So I reinstalled Diptrace and it's fixed. The only thing I can think of is the Library Loader and Samacsys I tried to use and was having no luck probably messed ...

Copper pour errors

Well I was making good progress and my copper pours were working but I would undo them as I wasn't finished yet so I could keep working. Now my copper pours quit working altogether with an error message "unpoured copper pours". I read about maybe a cutout was used instead of a board outline but that...

Re: Does this "easy" tool even work??

KevinA, I was looking for a PPTC RXEF010 and found Ultra Librarian had one so I registered and downloaded it and when viewed it looked like black hot air balloon. Not cool. :lol: So I found SmacSys and soon realized I downloaded it a few years back for use with DesignSpark PCB. The 3D file from Smac...

Re: Does this "easy" tool even work??

Well, after messing around with it some more last night and then again this morning, I gave up on the SamacSys tool. I did get it to work one time somehow and then either forgot to save the 3D model or gave up. Then I wasn't sure if I hosed my DT install so I uninstalled and reinstalled it after del...

Re: Question on library component

Thanks Tom. I will use this info and see what I can come up with. For some reason I don't think they have the leads like the datasheet shows so I will grab one of them and double check. I guess they are a bit out of line but I think some pads in line with each other would work too. Another question....

Re: Creating new pattern, newbie question

Thanks Tomg,
That will come in handy. I don't always have the datasheets for all the components I have picked up over the years but the pad spacing should really be all I need for now.
