This PADS data was uploaded because people were asking for it. It has not changed in the past couple years. It might be a good idea for someone to go in and clean it up and we can sell it on our upcoming Library Vending Machine and give the person who cleaned it up 25% sales royalty. Of course this like of other for sale libraries will be on a 5 star rating system with comments.
 
I consider this collection of data a Start-up library and we need to have it for every CAD tool, not just PADS Layout. So the offer is available to everyone using different CAD tools.
 
The selling price for each CAD tool Start-up library can be negotiated.

I know this is going back a bit but I am using PCBL Toolbar V1.3 on PADS 2005, Win XP. Haven't used it for a bit but now it stops on startup with unhandled exception - cannot create activeX component.
 
Is there a later version, or any idea what could have been changed?

I looked at the Pads Productivity Kit for a PCI ExpressFull-Mini (F1 or F2) Card outline. Unfortunately it was not in the Kit. Any chance one is available?
Thanks! RLS2004

The PCI Express Full-Mini card is not available, but if you create it and send it to us, we'll add it to the collection. Smile

Tom,
 
That's the one I already have, but I reloaded this one and had the same issue. Guess I'll have to live with it.
 
Thanks   ---  Roger

Ladies and Gentlemen,

is there a way to get a working PCBL_Toolbar for PADS 9.4?
Otherwise could you please suggest an alternative tool?

Thx in advance and best regards,
Patrick

Use the PADS Modeless Command "Z".
 
Z1 = Turn off all layers except Layer 1
ZA = Turn all layers On
 
Try all the "Z" options and let us know if that works for you.
 
I know it does not have all the bells and whistles as the "PCB Libraries Toolbar"  but that program was written by Phillip Restall in the UK and he's not around anymore. MIA.
