Re: Turnkey manufacture?

I can highly recommend the JLCPCB service! I've been using this since it became available a few months ago, and have had 10+ projects assembled this. Best price I've ever encountered, and really really great service. I had a guy from China call me at 10:30pm on a friday to resolve an issue with my g...

Re: Incorrect rotation data from export pick and place

Just another update for clarification. Here are two pictures of two diodes and their properties windows, side by side, facing opposite directions, showing the same angle.

Re: Incorrect rotation data from export pick and place

Thanks, Serg.

I want to clarify that this isn't an issue of practicality or my preference, but the exported pick and place data is actually wrong, showing the opposite angle for some parts placed on the bottom of a PCB.

Re: Incorrect rotation data from export pick and place

Sorry Alex but that is not true. Having the component flip vertically** when you change sides but the angle staying the same is definitely wrong. Specifically, the cathode of a diode pointing up and calling that 90 degrees rotation is 180 degrees away from the industry standard, and this bug is caus...

Re: Incorrect rotation data from export pick and place

Thanks for the reply, Alex! There definitely is an issue. When a component is moved to the bottom of the board, it will display (and thus export) an angle of 90 degrees when pointing "up" which is incorrect. An angle of 0 degrees, for a diode package, will have the cathode (-) pointing "left". a 90 ...

this was the other thread, and their method of replacing the part did not help here.

Re: Incorrect rotation data from export pick and place

Thanks for the reply, Tom. These are parts from custom libraries. My parts are usually footprints that came with Diptrace with a custom part number. Here is my repeatable process: 1) Place component, in this case a SOD-323 diode package. 2) Rotate the component 90 degrees by selecting/highlighting i...

Incorrect rotation data from export pick and place

Howdy, I'm finding that most of the time, components on the bottom side of a PCB come out with the wrong rotation data when I select "Export -> Pick and Place" For example, if set a component's angle to 0 degrees, press spacebar once to rotate 90 degrees, the resulting rotation value is 270. This le...
