Re: Export Nets list and Components list to .txt or csv file

I just discovered that I had killed the netlist loading to the dialog in the last software version. Man, I need a tester! Is it working for you? If so, how?

What exactly do you expect in the CSV file?
One line per component pin, containing:
component id; pin id; netlist name; smd/tht; side; x; y;?

input file contains netlist, BOM, etc

A Gerber data set contains a file containing a geometrically bounded netlist called IPC356. The file contains all pads of all components, their coordinates, designators, and the connected netlist names. The Gerber set typically contains the BOM in a CSV format, too. (If not, then I do not have it ei...

3.3 or 4.0?

The major highlight is the BOM processing via Digikey API. Also: Via barrel plating thickness setting. (important when exporting a STEP) DONE Hide/display all SMD/THT components. (helpful on a manual assembly line) DONE Components without a body (like a test point or edge fingers) need some means to...

Re: What is the via barrel plating thickness when exporting a STEP?

I am now working on functionality related to the BOM. Publishing a version now would have a counterproductive effect, so I have time to decide. I learned that the specification always applies to the final hole, except for the micro vias, so we are in line on this topic. Closing vias through metalliz...

Re: What is the via barrel plating thickness when exporting a STEP?

Feedback on my current PCB design: "For the drills of final diameter 0.2mm x 1849 drilled with 0.3mm having copper pad of 0.45mm with annular ring of 0.075mm." "As per our production requirement we need minimum 0.125mm annular ring (Measured form drill hole size)." I have asked t...

Re: What is the via barrel plating thickness when exporting a STEP?

I am adding this functionality. RenderEffects.png But what I found is that there is another variable defining the actual enlargement: const double PlattingThickness = 0.02; Setting it at 20um! The former variable found was a contact tolerance for electrical connection testing. If a PCB manufacturer ...

Re: What is the via barrel plating thickness when exporting a STEP?

The barrel radius enlargement is 7.8um (constant BRenlarge = 1/128mm - a beautiful number with many zeros in the binary float representation). I didn't bring this value up to the UI for the sake of keeping the UI simple. It would belong to View/Render Effect Parameters Dialog, as those values are ho...

Re: STEP Export with Solder Mask in Mechanical Mode

Please try to use the "Thermal Server" mode. Use the main window right panel to enable the layers you need. The downside will be that the internal "prepreg/core" for each pair of copper layers is included separately, even if the internal layers are switched off. This will be much...

3.2.6 (30-12-2023)

Component copy-paste - starting Component Library. Paste onto another component, overwriting all component model and body builder data. Paste in a free space - creates a new component instance, including a new footprint. This is a very experimental feature. Works on the component-list - preparing t...
