THT components footprint generation

#1

Hello,

After the Upverter update, I can only create automated footprints for SMT components, what happened with THT components?

Thank you

Hi Roberto, thank you for reporting this. The new and more powerful wizard that creates IPC compliant footprints has been migrated from Altium Designer, however it only supports SMD components. Footprints such as TO-92 can currently be created from the ground up, or cloned from a standard library component to change some parameters and get a new part.

We’re now planning to have two wizards, the new, current wizard for generating Footprints in accordance with the standards released by the IPC, and the previously available wizard for simple Footprints.

Best regards,

Hello,

Thanks for your reply. Please do add the THT wizard as before, one of the thing I like the most form Upverter is how easy is to create parts. I have to create parts from scratch or import from other designs it makes the whole process slower and prone to errors.

Thank you
