Diptrace vs Eagle
May 22, 2009
So I've been fidling around with diptrace and have really enjoyed working with it. Drawing out your schematic is simple enough, and converting it to a layout is trivial as well. The one thing I've noticed though is lack of some simple components when using the layout mode.
Maybe it's my noobness to doing layouts and not really knowing where everything should be located but for the life of me, I could not find a single button in any of the libs. I'm talking about the typical button that comes on most of our boards picaxe, arduino, BS2... that small 4 pin button. I've seen it it lots of eagle layouts...but again I searched in all the libs that diptrace comes with and even in the extra libs you can dl. I ended up modifying a 6pin dip as the pin postion was identical to what I wanted, but seriously....no buttons in diptrace?
I'mjust curious as to others expirience with this app and with having to build your own components...is this commen with this app?
