Re: Altium ASCII Schematic Import?

I successfully imported your file after changing the file extension filter as previously mentioned. I did it without trying to import the patterns. The schematic appeared in the design area with DipTrace's Net Port symbols, instead (of course).

Re: Altium ASCII Schematic Import?

The Beta 3.3 schematic import tool refuses to recognize the "*.SchDoc" file extension and thus will not list the file in the "Open" dialog window. If you specify a search for all files "All(*.*)", it will then appear in the list for selection and import.

Re: Copper pour problem

After placing new pads or vias, update all copper pours (you can assign a hotkey for this) to see if that clears up any associated DRC conflicts. Since you have no ground Net available in your PCB Layout, I'm inclined to think that you do not have a related schematic. If so, just connect a ratline b...

Re: DipTrace 3.3 beta

Thanks for the information. Another thing I've noticed in Beta 3.3 is that the Auto-Pan function does not detect the mouse cursor's position once it is outside the Design Area 's border. In previous versions, Auto-Pan is able to detect when the mouse cursor's position goes beyond the Design Area 's ...

Re: DipTrace 3.3 beta

Hi Stanislav, Here are some initial observations.... 1) Follow Rules mode needs to work in Edit Traces mode, also. This is critical. 2) What is the purpose of the " Fix Single Line " option? Can you show an example of it at work? I have noticed that the Follow Rules mode does not work on 45-degree t...

Re: BOM from PCB

The PCB Layout editor does not feature a BOM tool. Maybe you could try creating a Pick-and-Place file (File > Export > Pick and Place...) as a possible workaround.

Re: 3D step export with copper layers ?

"...Any way to export 3D step including copper layers ?..."
Not in version 3.2.0.1. There have been requests for this capability, but so far copper is only available using the VRML export.

Re: How to copy bus-connected components?

A third method involves assigning Nets to each pin without connecting to wires. After that, all you have to do to make copies is to select/highlight the component and then use copy (Ctrl + C) and paste (Ctrl + V)...
