Re: Patterns that combine multiple pads to a single pad?

You can link one pin to multiple overlapping pads when you attach the pattern to component. Then you will get rid of DRC errors in PCB Layout as overlapping pads will belong to the same net.

Re: DipTrace 3.3 beta

I do not know if i have done something wrong, or if this error is helpful with development. I performed eagle export on the "ubraidsII.dch" file here. https://github.com/jakplugg/uBraidsII the board file seems to open properly, but the schematic has a fatal error "line 5936, column 11: gate 'PART_A...

Re: 45° spokes not 45° on oval pads

We will check the thermal relief "4 spoke 45" for oval pads. Thank you for the report.

Re: PCB Panelization

Turn on the option "Keep RefDes while Pasting", convert board outlines to board cutouts, copy and paste 5 boards into a single file.
You may have issues in some cases but in general the feature works fine.

Re: changing corner radius on copper pours?

We don't have update so far. Copper pour outline can consist of lines only. If you need arcs you can approximate it with multiple small lines. In many cases you can create copper pour outline depending on board outline and the software will create copper pour outline automatically.

Re: NC Drill File Accuracy

There is no way to export NC drill file in 4.3 metric format. We will consider format customization for future versions.
If you change units to inches you can export NC drill file in format 2.4. This is not exactly you need but this format is more precise than metric 4.2.

Re: Fiducials in Pick and Place export

Hi Ron,
Fiducials (and other components) are excluded from pick and place file if they consist of one pad only. If components have two or more pads or have one pad plus shape these components are included to pick and place file. I suggest to add a shape to fiducials to solve the problem.

Re: losing mousebites on update

You can ungroup the component to individual items. They should not disappear while renewing board from schematic in that case.
