I want to convert the standard SM.LLB from 16.2 into 16.5 format.
I have created a catalog, set the plane layer to a routing layer and saved it as a .max file.
I then start a new board in PCB Editor, go to CAD Translators and import the .MAX file I just created with the footprint symbols in it.
I then export to libraries, specify the directory I want the files to go, and it says it completes. When I go to that directory there is nothing ther but a few .log files. No footprints.
I have done this process before with other .LLB libraries and did not have any problems. For some reason I can't get it to translate the SM.LLB library for nothing.
Any suggestions as to what I may be doing wrong? I have used this tech article as a guide: http://support.parallel-systems.co.uk/index.php/cadence/orcad/pcb-editor/item/108-ps-000044-tn-1
it does create the .txt files but no .dra or .psm files though.
