Re: Castlellated PCB Pattern

We have considered vias in Pattern Editor but don't plan it for the nearest version. You can use through-pads instead vias right now.
For pad offset you can use polygonal pads. Pad hole is always in 0,0 point, but you can edit polygonal pad points to get off-center pad.

Re: PCB milling using 3D printer

You can export layers edge_top and edge_bottom to DXF file then use free Ace converter that will create G-codes from DXF file.

Re: EAcessViolation

You can run DipTrace executables as administrator or reinstall DipTrace to custom folder. In second case, good place is non system drive or root folder of system drive but nether Program Files nor Documents.

Re: STEP export doesn't respect project units

There is no way to change units in STEP export. It seems STEP format requires using metric units.

Re: WebRoot virus scan flags CompEdit.exe as infected with W32.Hack.Tool

Thank you for the report. WebRoot is the only antivirus that flags CompEdit.exe as infected: https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/cb9ec ... /detection
We contacted WebRoot so that they will do necessary exceptions in their virus bases.
