7-segments with multi digits non existent in lib !?

#1 Post by protezoid » 22 Feb 2019, 18:06

Hello, I have searched in Diptrace software and forum for simple 7-segments with multi digits and there is none... I'm kind of surprised. I did see a post asking a similar question, dated 30 Nov 2018 and it was viewed 2076 times... 0 responded but me.

Only one 7-segment model was found of 1 digit with no pattern attached (led_8_cc) in Diptrace.
Could the Diptrace team fill this void in the library. 7-segments a pretty much basic components that are useful, if not necessary..

1-8 digits with 0.28, 0.36, 0.56 inches are needed
Besides http://componentsearchengine.com, anyone found another source or has some models?
thanks

grabcad.com has some 3D models of various 7-segment displays.

Hi!

I’ve loaded some of my 7-segment 3D models to grabcad over the past few weeks, available via the link on the above post (same username on grabcad and here).

I haven’t done the schematic symbols for these in Diptrace yet, but have done the footprints if you need them?

Thank you for 3D models! Yes the footprint would be needed also. Can you please send them to shared models section of this forum? I will complete the schematic symbols.
Thanks Ausfox!

Ok, I’ll upload the footprints to the shared section when I am next at my desktop.

I’ve only done 3D models of 7-Segments that I have in my parts drawer. If there are any in particular that you require, especially if they are generic and will appeal to a lot more people, then let me know and I’ll be happy to do them for you.
