Re: Should compare against schematic detect non connected pins?

Traces were not yet routed. But thanks for the tip on unrouting. That is really going to help. Now I need to break myself of the habit of deleting the traces.

Here is an example of missing traces. You can see the rat lines.

Should compare against schematic detect non connected pins?

I did a compare where there were obvious disconnected pins but they were not picked up as error. Should compare against schematic detect non connected pins?

Verification error on 7805 output

I am getting the following verification error on the output of a 7805.

What does it mean? How do I properly add a 7805 output as the supply for the rest of my project?

P.S. The power supply part of the schematic is on its own sheet.

DXF Import: Associating holes with pads

I have a rather odd pad design
Capture.PNG
I have holes on the pads drawn in Drafsight. The holes don't seem to be associating with the pads. I get verification rules and when I move the pads the holes don't go with it. How do get the holes to import?

List componets with hole sizes or find compoent with certain hole size?

I use a small CNC to drill holes. I like to standardize hole sizes to make life easier. Often I have trouble finding a few errant pads. I need to click on every blasted bad on the board and show properties. Is there any way to list components with their hole sizes or a way to find components by hole...

Show hole dimensions without having to select pad properties

Is there a way to display hole dimensions without having to select pad properties? Just by clicking on the pad for example?

Re: Knowing which components are using which size holes?

Excellent! Thanks!

Why is there a difference between .035" holes and .035" holes? All properties seem to be the same but I have 2 sets of entries with the same size.
