Importing from

#1 Post by frank2644 » 20 Aug 2020, 11:36

I downloaded two components from Then in Diptrace I select: import, diptrace ascii, imported_file.asc. I get file format incorrect on both downloads.

I am a new Diptrace user and I have been able to use Diptrace pretty easily, but I must admit adding components to libraries seems like a confusing topic.

I use V4.0.0.5

The component I need are nodemcu,that is the development board for the esp8266 wifi module.

Any help on where to get component definitions is appreciated.

Be sure the file format is DipTrace ASCII. The same extension can be in another files.

You can open the file in any text editor and read the first line. If it is DipTrace ASCII file it should contain (Source "DipTrace-ElementLibrary") line.

Just import Eagle versions. It always works for me.
