Re: Part Definition?

Few people fully trust the included libraries regardless of the cost of the software package. Other third party libraries have the potential to be even less reliable than the included libraries. Most large electronics firms build and maintain their own libraries to meet particular requirements. Use ...

Re: how to edit patterns

Copy the needed standard DipTrace patterns to a custom pattern library within the User Patterns group. Once there, you can then change them as you wish (don't forget to resave) for subsequent use in your components/designs.

Re: Include Sheet in Schematic

If you are wondering if there is a way to automatically link a schematic page to another schematic file, I don't believe that is possible in DipTrace. As far as I know, you will have to cut and paste from another open Schematic Editor instance and live with the automatic renumbering of the pasted sc...

Re: How to import a STEP model to library?

Patterns and components cannot create themselves simply by assigning a name. You will have to place and number pads as recommended in the product's datasheet using the Pattern Editor . You will also have to place the corresponding pins and draw a schematic representation of the component using the C...

Re: DipTrace Tending in mm NOT working

" Tented " will override the Custom Solder Mask Swell setting and cover the entire pad with solder mask on the desired layer. Select " Common State " to allow the Custom Solder Mask Swell setting to take affect on that layer. By the way, if your component is on the Top layer and your pattern does no...

Re: How to import a STEP model to library?

Place the new STEP file into your custom 3D library folder. Since the standard DipTrace libraries are locked and don't include the VQFN-46 pattern or LP5030 component, you will need to create your own... Pattern Editor 1) Open the appropriate " User Patterns " library in the Pattern Editor and add a...
