    How to associate footprint and symbol Reply

     

    Hello,

    I have to create a new component, and I knew how to do that with Orcad 10, but now I have the new 16.3 version and I'm lost...

    I've create a new symbol part with Orcad capture and a new footprint using Orcad pcb editor. Now, how can I link them?

     

    The help file is huge and I couldn't find how to create a new part from A to Z, neither on Internet.

    Could you help me please?

    Thank you

    This is the same property as ever, the PCB Footprint property value in Capture specifies the name of the footprint used in the PCB tool. From the PCB end, the PSMPATH and PADPATH user preferences in PCB Editor determine which directories are searched for the footprint symbol files.
