Re: DipTrace 3.3 Release

1) do you have anything planned for components and parts management? What management features do you need? 2) can you confirm if RefDes free rotation is now possible in PCB? yes 3) PCB: is it possible to add stitching vias automatically not yet 4) Schematic print PDF with hyperlinks for net names, ...

Re: DipTrace 3.3 Release

Anything about teardrops? Maybe: We made IPC-7351 compatibility, it required redesign of some features, which require redesign of others and so on. We decided not to make "work-arounds" and to redesign/make all necessary long-waited things to make further development easier and faster. As a result ...

Re: DipTrace 3.3 Release

Theses are great, any word on PAD STACKS? Do you mean different pad shape/size in different signal layers? Not yet. Also forgot to mention: 18. Segmented paste mask and solder mask by paste mask (segmented also possible). 19. Solder mask and paste mask of pads are now visible in design area when ap...

Re: DipTrace 3.3 Release

Is there going to be any improvements to routing functions?
This function is on hold at the moment. I'm completing the features described above (majority of them are necessary for IPC-7351) and then continue interactive router, however I'm not sure I will complete it till 4.0 release.

Re: DipTrace 3.3 Release

I also find 6 month a little bit much, with basically not any words at all of any improvements or so. We are preparing version 4.0 Some of already included improvements (not all): 1. Multiline text 2. Roundrect and D-shape pads 3. Free rotation angle of pads, components, text - without changing com...

Re: DipTrace for Mac OS X

perhaps you could at least fix the printing under Wine so that circles appear !!
We will approximate them as polylines. I suppose that will help.

Re: DipTrace for Mac OS X

The work on native Mac OS version was temporarily stopped due to huge amount of work and lack of resources. We have made some progress investigating possibilities and making short version of Pattern Editor for Mac though. We are now working on IPC-7351 compatibility, some long-waiting features and p...

Re: Push and Shove

I really like Diptrace, but push and shove would make it the clear winner. Is push and shove still in the works? or has it been abandoned due to its complexity? Development was delayed due to complexity and need to make IPC-7351 compatibility which is in priority over push and shove for many corpor...

Re: DipTrace 3.3 Release

Now that the pattern editor is being reworked, I would also consider the option of defining the position of the RefDes in the Silkscreen and Assembly independently, so the footprint is charged with these configuration in the PCB Layout. Component markings is also subject to rework (not yet started)...

Re: DipTrace 3.3 Release

Will we have teardrops in this upcoming release? This is one of the highest priority feature, but I can not promise that. Currently we are optimizing program for IPC7351 standard, so all those features are added (also all our new libraries are developed for that standard, so we do not include them ...
