    reusing old .max library footprint Reply

    Is there a way to take an old library part (footprint) out of an old .max file and save it in my custom library. This is from an board layout created well before i worked here, and as it happens so often, it would save time from creating these library parts again

    You've posted in the wrong forum. Boards are nothing to do with Custom IC Layout - you want the Silicon Package Board forums.

    Regards,

    Andrew.

    Yes there are a couple of ways :

    1,
    Open the *.max file in Layout and then goto
    File -> Save AS
    > change the type to *.llb library
    This will create all the footprints in your design as a library file.

    2,
    Open your Library Manager Window
    Goto Add and change the "files of type" to *.max
    browse to your MAX file and open it into the library Manager Window
    Find your footprint and choose "Save As"

    Save it to an existing library or choose to create a new library.
