Pattern Editor automatic radius

#1 Post by Tomg » 08 Mar 2020, 17:02

A frequent task that I have been working through while practicing updating v3 pattern libraries for v4 is to calculate the IPC-7351 recommended corner radius for some of the rectangular pads (25% of the shorter side, but not exceeding 0.25mm). What exists in the v4 Pad Properties dialog window is functional, but it could be improved. It would be helpful to have an option in the Pad Properties dialog window that would make DipTrace automatically calculate and set the IPC-7351 recommended pad radius (25% of the shorter side, but not exceeding 0.25mm) for a given rectangular pad size. Since this would be an option, it could be deselected to allow the user to manually enter a unique radius value for special cases...
