Rebel1 wrote: 05 Dec 2022, 22:23 I'd want to ask Diptrace to include different types of heatsinks, along with their 3D models. These are currently a basic and essential component of any electronic PCB or assembly, whether it be on a THD or an SMD platform. I'm having trouble designing these using the component and pattern editors because I can't currently find them in any of the Diptrace libraries.
Please specify the part numbers and datasheet links. We will consider them.

I'd suggest to create a new forum category aimed at Spice modeling in DT. All simulation related questions (GUI, workflow, models creation/acquisition/importing, running, etc...) will be placed there. All the news on NGSpice which effect DT users should be posted there.
And also documentation : update your "training.pdf" on-line doc (this was my main doc 6 years ago to learn DT ) and would be great to have another doc specifically dedicated to Spice...
With gratitude to DT team for the tool,

Microcontroller variants are sometimes available, and sometimes not. For example, the MSP430FR23xx is missing, while most other variants are in the standard library.

By the time we notice something is missing, though, we already need to create a component/pattern for it. So there is little reason to request that particular part be added, except to help others.

I agree that more connectors would be helpful.
