Re: PCB: F12

The reason of not optimizing ratlines automatically is saving CPU time. That may be a problem on complex boards. We will consider an option to turn on/off automatic ratline optimization if users request the option frequently.

Re: Net names and hierarchical sheets

Different nets with the same name are not allowed in DipTrace even though these nets are bounded within different hierarchical sheets. You can add a suffix or index in net names so that net names on different sheets will be different but still similar.

Re: 3D Displaying oddly

Most probably, the design has board cutout instead board outline. In that case, replace board cutout to board outline and 3D preview will be fine.

Re: The IPC-2581 standard?

Thank you for the suggestion. It seems IPC-2581 provides similar functionality as ODB++ or Gerber X2. If the standard becomes popular and supported by many manufacturers and CADs we will consider adding the export to our software.

Thank you for the report, we will check these components and patterns. In future libraries however, patterns will be named and modified according IPC-7351C standard.

Re: Importing from Eagle brd file - only silk layer text missing

Importing Eagle files using ULPs is outdated method. We suggest to use native import of Eagle files in XML format in the latest version of DipTrace.

Re: 3D preview in Pattern Editor

The problem may be caused by graphics mode in Pattern Editor. It uses the same mode as PCB Layout but a wrong value may be written to registry somehow. Please start PCB Layout and change graphics mode in "View -> Graphics Mode". Close PCB Layout and restart Pattern Editor. Try 3D preview in Pattern ...

Re: Net connectivity problem

Check net connectivity checks real connections regardless of visibility of layers or objects. If check net connectivity reports no short circuits and no missing connections you should trust it. But DRC and check net connectivity verify different things therefore you should run both of them.

Re: 3D preview in Pattern Editor

Do you use custom 3D model for that pattern? If so please upload this model for verification.
