You need to check if the footprint associated to PCB device matches to the pinouts of the SCH component in the library.
The reason of this happening is that the component jumps far out of the boundaries of your screen because the origin (center) of the footprint was set incorrectly. Return to the footprint library where you made the footprint, then use Edit => Origin to return it to the center of your footprint. Then choose (...)
Then add one yourself, this is THE basic skill of using CAD, creating your own symbols, footprints and part references....
Add the footprint library (PcBLib) to your project and then select "Any" in the footprint selection dialog window.
Are you embedding the STEP file into a PCB or a footprint library? After embedding it, does it show up on the layer you included it on in 2D view?
It is called multi part component in altium. You need to create the component in proper way in library, where each symbol is drawn as Part under one Component. Look at New Part command in schematic symbol editor. Then you need to have same Designator to all parts to get them all to one footprint. Petr
( @ArticCynda: Agreed. Tough love) It's time to do some engineering: Design your own footprint: it's only four pins and a rectangular outline Find a relay with a similar footprint and modify it.
You can open Protel file in altium import wizard. But there will be no net connectivity. You can copy the footprint from PCB file to altium library file by manually. But direct import, 8-O need to check
Of course you can use altium built in library symbol and then create a footprint for that symbol. You can find a PMOS in miscellaneous devices (PMOS-2) copy this to your library and the create the footprint.
You can create any footprint or schematic symbol in the libraries. Check this link
You can always create your own symbol. Don't expect that every symbol, ever drawn, will be included in EDA package that you use. Leaern how tio create your own symbols and footprints, if you intend to stay in this business.
Hi All. I know to import 3D STEP on altium PCB footprint (from footprint Lib > Place > 3D Body). But I can see, there is another option of adding PCB3D Lib at Schematic library. Please see the attached picture. I create a separate PCB3D Lib using a R 0603 STEP and added in into Schematic Lib ... but what is the (...)
You could just make a component in the library and use the accordian feature to create an antenna footprint possibly?
Yes, you'll add a DIP8 footprint model to the component definition, ususally from the package libary shipped with altium Designer.
Dear friends, I would like to know how can I create on altium Designer a component with two separated schemactics... I don't really know how to explain, but I'd like to create, like the amp-ops, one component that have two separated schemactic components, with the comum footprint. Like the U1 and U2 from the 741. Hope you can help me. Thank
footprint can be added to component in schematic library editor. footprint can be edited in pcb liprary editor.
Where i can get altium footprint library for 5mm pitch,2 pin connector (Male/Female)?
I want to create a SCHLIB component and PCBLIB footprint for a connector which is purchased as multiple components. They sell the contacts separately from the housing so I want to have a single component show up with two part numbers on the BOM. I was originally going to create two components, one for each part, but then I run into problems with
Does someone can write script which places a footprint "AXIAL-0.4" from "Miscellaneous Devices.IntLib" library to the active pcb document?
Hi, I want a suitable footprint for SMD electrolytic capacitor 470uF/25V and 1000uF for altium, but can't find any thing. please help me to find it. Thanks.
have you checked if there are not multiple STEP models assigned to the footprint. Maybe they are on a different layer?
Hi, All of a sudden my whole footprint library seems to be screwed up. I just added a new component to my company's altium footprint library. I then added the schematic symbol to go with it and inserted it into my project. Updated the PCB and everything looked just fine. I then added a few more parts (...)
Hi, I am newbie of altium and wondering if somebody can help me with this footprint. I am unsure how altium will react when you have pads on two layers but no through plated hole. If I define each pad as different pad, will it create a proper pad layout. I am looking for Samtec ASP-111174-01 , Shielded Edge connector. I have attached a (...)
Hello, In standard altium libarary there is no footprint of DB25 male PCB socket. Where can I find it?
Hello, I've noticed that the components in my PCB have silkscreen which is too big and takes up too much room....i want to edit the components, make the silkscreen more smaller, and then update the pcb with the new footprints...but how do i go about this? Is it possible to just adjust the footprint in the library and then click a (...)
Hi, I have just changes a footprint in the library, then deleted the component in the scem , then replaced it with the new component, then "design updated" it through to pcb, but the footprint in the pcb is still the old footprint. do you know how i can change to the new footprint?
Thanks, i have tried starting again in a new project but the fault is still i think i will try an d re-install software as you say.....but is it likely to have been corrupted. I did a schematic using symbols but no footprints attached to them and it was fine......its all happened since i started doing footprints. I am just wo
How do you draw squares in altium 10 PCB library editor? -then , when the squares have been drawn, how do you move them by their centre and snap the centre to the centre of the component footprint. As you know, the component courtyard, is generally square , and this is needed for collision avoidance and to extrude up from to get the 3D (...)
Hi, I need Sim card holder 6 pins library (shematic and footprint) in altium designer, here's a photo of sim card holder i reply ASAP! best regards...
There is a model assign to it in the schematic symbol itself. see image below. In there is also a path or location for the footprint. 73475
Hi everybody. I have a problem with my final project, I need an altium DXP PCB library that contains MAX2606 footprint or Intlib. is there anyone that has this foot print library? If anyone has its footprint in other software such OrCAD, I can import it into altium DXP and use it. this (...)
Hi, i need Sim908 schematic and footprint in altium designer. please reply a link if available...:-| best regards...
Is there a way to make the components in the schematic sheet change to a different colour once a footprint has been added to that component? It would be very helpful for looking at schematics at a glance to see which components are missing footprints, etc.
Hi Sean, you have answered your question: "how can I place a one whole (just think it as a one pin header)" .... add one pin header. You can check the Axial 0.3 footprint in footprint library, or print the PCB in 1:1 scale and compare it with your real resistors. If you have problems to create the one pin header have a look at [url=www.fedev
In Protel 98 I could place a part in sch using the keyboard and specify the library reference (RES), component comment (1k) and footprint (0805) I'm using Integratedlibrary:PlacelibraryComponent and all I can specify is library reference: LibReference=RES How do I specify footprint (...)
1) how i can copy footprint which is already present in altium library? tell me procedure.. 2) can i edit footprint which is already present in altium library? tell me procedure...
I guess, your problem is to get familiar with the altium tools and provided libraries. You just need to add the footprint to the standard chip resistor, provided in the misc. components library. footprints are named by metric sizes in this library.
better to make your own library 8 pin ic you have to make for schematic then name it of your choice and for the footprint you can also make a library for this too.all the dimensions are given in datasheet of the belonging parts.and also there are library in altium you can search it through search optiom.
Hi, I often need to create custom footprint for new component and I need to check if it fits well. In OrCAD I was used to print it 1:1 on paper and align component on and eventually do a fine tune. Now in altium PCB library editor I can see that menu/file/print is grayed out so I can't print. I had to put a footprint on PCB (...)
I have some footprints with non-trivial pads. I used a region in top layer over a pin to model required shape. How do I assign this region to overlayed pin? I can see there's Net option in pin and region properties but cannot choose nothing (not surprised in library where no nets). The problem is after placement this footprint in PCB editor (...)
Hi, Need help on below issue in altium Summer 9. Copy my whole entire project folder to another computer and run the same project, i realize that most of my custom footprint not in correct patch and this cause most of the footprint on PCB editor corrupted. May I know what is the correct way to input footprint (...)
i can give you altium footprint?
Hi, Anyone have footprint "LY530ALH" or "LPR530AL" for altium designer? I can't find in altium footprint library. Thanks.
Hello, Using altium Designer Summer 09, I am in the process of designing a custom footprint for a PCB library (file with PcbLib extension). Is there a way to print a 1:1 version of this footprint while I am designing it? I've noticed that when designing the footprint, the File->Print Preview and (...)
m using orcad 9.1 last 6 months only. i m new 2 this field. in orcad layout library, for smd type footprint what is this, "QUAD.050/44/WG.785" here 44 means 44 pins then 0.05? wg.785?. plz explain it
Hi, I have a database library for altium and now i want to aad a new component group to it. i inserted a new table, then added the required parameters for the new part. Then i have created a new sch. symbol library and footprint library. I have now the new symbol and footprint for the (...)
Hi. I'm quite new to ADS, but I think it's great. Sadly I want to use transistor models that are not in the ADS lib. So how can I create an ADS model for simulation from a netlist file, that the transistor companys offer? I know how to do that in PSpice, but how to in ADS? The second question is how can I create footprints for the new mode
Check the origin of Mounting Hole footprint its origin might not be at its centre.
first have only one schematic symbol. next create multiple footprints. next step when you are integrating the component into library, assign all the footprints to the schematic. when we are trying to place a component from library, it should show all the available footprints for that component. you can (...)
I've inherited a design that needs to get some updates and fixes. All of the schematic work is done and compiles without error or warning. Now I am editing the PCB but am having quite a bit of trouble. Going to tools->update PCB from libraries seems to work. It comes up with a long list of parts whose footprints don't match the libraries. No pro
