Re: 3D import fails

That's a 49.7MB file, which is enormous for one " dumb solid " component. I tried to take a look at it in Alibre , but there was nothing to display after it loaded up. I then loaded it into FreeCAD. That took over five minutes before displaying what looked like a corrupted drawing, then it locked u...

KiCad import

I'm running KiCad drawing that would be nice to be able to import, they are ASCII already... This would be a nice way to introduce KiCad users to DipTrace.

Import Altuim ASCII

I was looking at a 12 layer board by Lime Micro (LimeSDR people) and talked them into exporting ASCII but run into a problem: The first three schematic drawings open and import with just an empty title block. 01_BlockDiagram_ASCII.SchDoc 02_PowerDiagram_ASCII.SchDoc 03_ClockDiagram_ASCII.SchDoc Shee...

Re: Importing DXF for drill holes - which layer to use?

Please check the bug report thread for updates, I suspect that it's not an issue with the DXF data from AI but an issue with importing any DXF file into Diptrace. So what happens when you import a circle from LibreCAD and try to convert it to a mounting hole in Diptrace? It works. When I exported t...

Re: DXF circular polyline import bug

Thanks for reporting this. I think the issue is something besides a spline/polyline issue, because even a rectangular shape from Illustrator, once imported into Diptrace, doesn't appear on the mounting holes layer either. I also tried several DXF files from various websites, all of them fail to app...

Re: Importing DXF for drill holes - which layer to use?

Thank you, here's a single circle, exported from Illustrator. https://www.dropbox.com/s/3k9sttylq6pbky8/test.dxf I would have to say that using a vector drawing program to produce DXF files may not work out: What version of AI are you using? When I look at the circle.dxf in turbocad I find only a s...

Re: Import ASCII

data.gif AutoDesk bought Eagle, who'd a thought. I found a version of 7.7 and downloaded it, I then found 8.01 and downloaded it. There are a few users at Element14 that are not happy... Something about having to pay $500 a year or at monthly payments $780 a year. No other options for more than 4 l...
