Tutorial can be found here: Component Editor Tutorial
The written component editor tutorial has been created. If you’re looking for a quick overview of the programs features and interested in learning how to draw up a component and attach a pattern then this is a good place to start.
Next week I’ll have the schematic capture tutorial drafted up and prepared to be posted. Being the single person operating this site, I have a lot of idea of what I want to do with it and I’m working diligently on each feature at the same time, so if you’re just now viewing this site, please bare with me there are things to come. One additional note, I am currently working on a download page for all the downloadable content on this site.
Tutorial Link: Eagle to DipTrace
Did some digging and noticed there wasn’t a whole lot of support for this topic so I put together a tutorial on how to convert Eagle files to DipTrace. In this tutorial I did identify some of the flaws but didn’t get into them too much. I am working on a guide with a list of the issues and how they can be fixed.
Tutorial can be found at: DipTrace Pattern Editor Overview
The Pattern Editor Tutorial is completed. After reviewing the tutorial I realized it’s more of an overview than a tutorial. I’m thinking about creating a tutorial where I run through the creation of a pattern for the absolute beginner. For now this should arm you with the tools necessary to complete your own parts.
I’ve been playing around with DipTrace for a little while now and have started creating my own libraries. So far my libraries are very minimal, but as I continue using the software I’ll keep adding to them. Within the next month I’ll have an entire library dedicated to Arduino. My files are on GitHub, great site for tracking progress on a project, I’ll post a link to the files below.
RP-SMA Mount – Antenna mount
Breakout Accel – Accelerometer pin mapping
Prgm Header – Another Pin map
VibrtMotr – Vibration Motor
MCP73831/2 DFN – LiPo charge managment controller
