Bugs that appear to have been fixed in v4.0.0.5
I can now view a PCB in 3D without the pop up window "Search 3D Models" spinning forever

Re: TO92 patterns

In the library the PDF attached is for a non AP part and the pattern has 1.27 pitch for the TO92 (TO92-AP1?). The pad holes are .997mm where a 0.6mm holes would be good.
Which brings to question, why does a pattern have a vendor component PDF attached?

Re: Print Current Sheet from Print Preview fails first time

Never used the 'Print Preview' ICON: Did your setup, selected the second sheet of a three sheet drawing (nothing was gray'ed out), clicked print current, it did as told.

Re: 3D Models Not Drawn Properly in V4.0.0.4

More issues: Installed update, opened PCB but when I try to view 3D of PCB I get: 4004-3D-Fail.jpg And nothing else. Where are 3D model files located? If they are on network drive it may take some time to scan all 3D models. The 3d files are local, on an SSD with an outrageous read rate, I moved th...

Install/Update Program file Name

Currently the install/update program name is diptrace_en64.exe (PC) It would be less confusing if it had the version number attached: diptrace_en64.4.0.0.4.exe
With the version number attached it makes it clear we have the correct one and it leaves the previous version untouched for roll-back.

Re: Does this "easy" tool even work??

What device were you after? I've used SmacSys since Mouser started using it, Mouser being my distributor of choice. I had issues at first and now the biggest issue is finding the device has no SamacSys device but I can pay for one :(

Re: Why are 3D Models Assigned to Patterns Instead Of Components?

A component is a logical representation of a device, it has properties that allow building a schematic and generating a netlist but one property a component doesn't have is pin physical position and that is needed to mate to a 3D model. You can (must) assign a pattern to a component but since the pa...

Re: Pattern editor has no "Graphics Mode" setting, so "3D Model" is glacially slow

This takes about 4 seconds to load

I have assumed that the pattern editor inherits whatever the Graphics Mode is of the PCB editor.
