Pick&Place export

#1 Post by eeng » 15 Sep 2020, 10:13

I am using DipTrace 3.3.1.3. When I generate a Pick&Place file, all components are exported into the file.
I would like to choose only SMT components. I had to remove THT components manually; this is time consuming and can generate mistakes.

Is this feature possible?

Thank you.

Add a field NP or TH for Not Placed / Through Hole then in the Pick and Place report add the field to the end of the report. After you generate the P&P report open it and delete the lines where NP or TH are set, I use UltraEdit macros or with Excel sort by NP/TH then delete the rows that are set.
On my P&P machine I can load the P&P report then mark the NP/TH components as not placed along with connectors and other components that will be manually installed.
