Re: Archiving Projects

Same as TomG but I have the DipTrace 3D images on my Terabyte drive and all the other diptrace WORK files on c:\diptrace. Archive is the Windows File History, on major projects I use export ascii and GIT for file versioning.

New Computer, new install and library transfer

I installed the latest Diptrace and registered it without a hitch, copied my C:\Diptrace working folder that contains all my libraries and projects but discovered I was missing the configuration files for Diptrace to know where everything is located.

Re: Where is the best place made to PCB board?

There is a lot to consider: How many PCB's? Layer Count? Size? Complexity (6 layer with parts on both sides and very-small-vias)? Shipping and build time required? US built vs China? For One of a Kind prototype I use OSHpark.com -On small PCB their price and shipping/build times are great - PCBWay (...

I thought you had updated the 3D library:
7,514 STEP models and 3513 VRML 2.0 models for 3D visualization and export. Updated May 27, 2017

Re: Manufacturing data for PCB

Amusing, the table was 10 times the size of my PCB. I exported ODB++, it has all that information, but I can't find a board shop that supports ODB++ that I can afford. The PCB information is what the PCB manufacture has listed, standard for the PCB manufacture, it is not something I'd be likely to '...

Re: looking for SM4007 component

There are two "surface mount" packages for this device. The obsolete but still available SM4007W comes in the SOD-87 ("MELF") glass-passivate round package. The SM4007PL comes in the SOD-123FL plastic package. SOD-87.jpg SOD-123FL.jpg DipTrace does have the SOD-87 and the SOD-123 in its " General "...
