Re: Bottom paste

Do you get the same results when you load a new instance of the component into the PCB directly from the library?

Re: Copper Pour does not connect to board connectors as seen on rat nest

There is more than one problem on this board. 1) While working on the +3.3V layer I discovered two copper pours occupying the same space. Delete the redundant GND pour on that layer. 2) Continuing to work on the +3.3V layer, right-click on the outline/edge of the remaining copper pour and select " P...

Net Port Modes

Add a " Net Port Mode " selection to the Schematic Editor that would allow a user-defined Net Port behavior. For example, when connecting a Net Port to a new net/wire... 1) The " Rename Net Port " option forces the Net Port to disconnect from all other identically-named Net Ports, then gives it the ...

Re: Net issues

Here is my net port rant from last year - https://diptrace.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=13276&p=28034 I'm open to better ideas about how net ports should actually behave, but I'm not a big fan of the way they are being handled right now. Am I missing something, perhaps a setting, that would make us...

Re: Net issues

"...when I started wiring the connector every pin wants to be GND or NET 6..." This sounds like all of the net ports were accidentally tied to GND. Going into this blind I can only assume that the net port tied to GND was the first to be connected and when other similarly-named net ports were place...

Re: Can not find a way to delete an unwanted Layer in PCB

It is my understanding that the default Top and Bottom layers cannot be deleted so you will have to delete one of the inner layers. Hopefully, you haven't routed anything on the inner layer to be deleted, otherwise you will need to either transfer its traces to the Bottom layer before deleting or ma...

Re: Import cad rules

As far as I know DipTrace does not yet have the ability to import board-house specific DFM (Design For Manufacturing) files as of version v4.1 . Some board houses provide DFM files for a select few EDA programs and others do not. This gives me the impression that no industry-standard universal DFM f...

ERC Power/Ground multiple entries

Allow multiple entries in the " Power: " and " Ground: " boxes of the Electrical Rule Setup so more specific parameters for the Short Circuit test can be defined. For example, in the " Power: " box the user could enter several parameters like " V+, VP*, VCC* ". Similarly, several parameters such as ...
