Posted by CadstarGuy at A question I often get asked when I mention drill drawings is “why bother when the drill sizes are in the NC data” they say. I have been a bit busy of late, things I wanted to blog about I have held off because of a few technical issues I did not feel I should post.

So what is the warning? Suggestions on how to get more reading it would be most tutroial. The dangler is that little blob that gets left dangling when making a schematic connection and you double click in free space. Wish I had some pictures I could use though.

Well its two fold. Sunday, 28 November Any better? Wednesday, 10 November Who said what? Here the vertical connection has been pulled to the right to show the dangler. With current environmental legislation preventing a lot of simple throwing away of old electronic xadstar and equipment it can often be costly to dispose of, requiring licensed waste disposal contractors and so on. First off, are you or your organization already using Altium Designer?

Not cadstra I don’t like connecting up hundreds of components and thousands of connections over many layers to make an electronic circuit work and work wellbut because I don’t miss the dark place that I was in when I was doing it. How do you draw your diodes? Sunday, 30 May Comments and Questions? The type of package I am talking about is for example the QFP style with a large square middle heatsink pad that also has some vias that go through to copper features on other layers.

You came to the right place! Firstly, do not draw your schematics on a fine 1th grid, speaking from experience it allows them to look awful, connections are not straight as they do not line up – symbols are all on different levels etc.

However we are still able to use them by creating a signal reference that has no symbol – so it can be placed on the same net and terminal of any other item. Did you know we offer special discounted student licenses?

Something that really puzzles me is why so many designers are still using a single monitor to design with. Later on when trying to find files the user – perhaps having recently upgraded from Windows XP cannot find half of the installed files – where is this elusive public folder and what is the point of it?

We have the perfect program for you. It’s actually been over 18 months since I actually completed a PCB design, and I’m pretty sure that I do cadsyar miss it one iota! You can download a free Altium Designer Viewer license tutoriial is valid for a 6 months.

Questions are asked on whether someone should use Millimetres or Thou as a measurement unit. Wednesday, 16 June Life is much better cdastar multiple monitors.

Considering CADSTAR.

Saturday, 27 October Adding testpoint net names on your Silk layer. I have had designs that others have drawn that have had vadstar like this and there have been net disconnects which would have made the circuit a failure had I not changed the dangler shape as one of the first things I do in a schematic.

The mapping is used by the Import Wizard to build the layer mapping for each PCB in the imported design, so during the import of several PCB files, a saved mapping configuration file can be loaded and applied to individual or all Tuyorial files.

Monday, 4 July Recycling your old electronic components or IT equipment? Useful material about drawing and analyzing layout 4.

Demonstration Movies of Key Features

Potentiometer with Microcontroller 3. Over recent years an issue has arisen where a user has problems installing the Sentinel drivers for the security key dongle. Friday, 11 June A simple report listing testpoints and attached nets. A spacing class cadstr a way of identifying that a net should be treated different to other nets with regard to spacings.

Yet there are tools out there that will enable us to make all our component footprints to a consistent standard, following IPC guidelines and best of all the best tool for this is FREE!! Sunday, 12 February I have gone mobile!

The time now is Hopefully the next few days posts should make up for those. When adding a border to your designs, in order to not be redrawing it every design it should be created as a document symbol.


If you search then the self teach files are available too. Generally when creating a part and I am adding a hyperlink to a datasheet, I want to add the full path including file name into my parts library.

Monday, 16 May Further improving your schematic templates. Tuesday, 2 December Imperial or Metric – Does it really matter? Well of course it does not work – its only a toy one, but if you asked these questions to a car mechanic they would want to know a little more about what is wrong with it, has the wheel fallen off?

Secondly, and this is the most important bit – Change the shape of the dangler! Now I just need to pull my finger out and make enough posts to warrant you visiting it on your phone: Wednesday, 17 November Dangerous Diodes! Does anyone know it exists?

The importer is included in Altium Designer as a platform extension, and the function is presented as an import file type option in the design file Import Wizard.
