Re: Import of STEP file for 3D model blinks "Importing...", but no effect

I see the same problem in version 3.3.1.3 . In addition to the "FILE_NAME" line, there are " hieroglyphs " on the following lines... #524 #885 #1028 #1097 #1439 #1789 #1848 #1858 Deleting the questionable group of characters " •W€•iƒ³8 " seems to have fixed the problem for me. In some of the above-...

Re: Copper pour clearance issues

Grasping at straws, the following two procedures are only suggestions for ways to try to uncover and possibly fix the problem. If anything else comes to mind I'll post it here. Good luck. 1) In the Layers panel at the upper-right side of the screen of the PCB Layout editor, make sure all of the laye...

Re: Copper pour clearance issues

I understand about not being able to post the file. Would you be able to share the relay part number so I can examine the recommended footprint in the manufacturer's datasheet? Assuming the violet color is the bottom silkscreen layer, it's possible that the error in the lower right-hand corner might...

Re: Copper pour clearance issues

Would you be willing to post a copy of the PCB file here (put it in a zip folder) so I can examine it? In the meantime, have you played around with the clearance settings in the Copper Pour Properties dialog window?...

Re: IV-17 tube pattern with castellated pins

Could you post a screenshot of the PCB layout problem area? I assume your component/pattern looks something like this... cp.gif 3d.gif If so, all of the clearance errors caused by the unusual Board Cutout placement through those pad centers is preventing the autorouter from being able to follow the ...

so that it is symetrical?
Not to my knowledge. You might want to suggest this as a new, desired capability in the Feature requests forum.

Re: PCB Layout editor - Hide Silk Drawings

Why would you like to do this on individual components? Usually, most components don't need to have their silkscreen drawings suppressed; just a select few due to special-case, unavoidable clearance issues. Redesigning the artwork in the pattern library for these special cases is time-consuming and...
