Re: Annular ring pad with drill hole

I was able to get it to work by following these instructions... https://www.diptrace.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=10961 ...which are similar but require you to export and import from PCB layout *twice*. The first time creates the outlines, the second time fills between them. Then you important the ...

Import of STEP file for 3D model blinks "Importing...", but no effect

The files attached. They were downloaded from the Panasonic website. They import Fusion and AutoDesk 3D Viewer without issue.

Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

Thanks!

Thru-hole component with different pads on each side?

I am trying to make a component that has a thru hole with a larger pad on the top than on the bottom. (It is for an electrically connected screw that contacts with the top pad - the bottom pad is only there to make the hole be platted thru) In the pattern, I have two thru holes with different sized ...

You could create a batch file that exported the diptrace designs in various formats as part of the commit process. For example, I'd like to be able to see a visual diff for PCB layouts, a...
