Just wondering what is being done for Altium users?  Currently, we create all our own library symbols and footprints adding step files to them so we can export the 3D to SolidWorks for our mechanical engineers and view the models in our board designs. Altium's 3D engine is very good.  If I knew how to attach a picture to this post I would... :) Bill

Good to hear from you again, Bill! It sure has been a while! We intend to eventually offer full support for all CAD/CAE formats. We are pursuing quite a bold endeavor and as we get started will be counting on others, as Tom explained.

Bill, what company are you with? I also create my own footprints with an embedded stp file
I make using Solidworks.........You're right, Altium 3D renderings are so good I copy, crop, and
paste them into my assembly prints since they're only images. Meanwhile, the real 3D PCBs I make 
in Solidworks from Altium are also very detailed, right down to the pads, traces and silk screen. Of
course you can't use IDF to make that type of 3Ds.

Hi,
 
You have to download libraries from the Altium website.
 
In there default software package they have very limited libraries.

I totally do not understand this request for an Analog Devices ADM485 Footprint for Altium.

http://www.analog.com/static/imported-files/data_sheets/ADM485.pdf 

Download the free PCB Library Expert Lite V2013.20 here www.pcblibraries.com and install it and auto-generate the Altium Footprint or thousands of footprints for free.

The Analog Devices ADM485 is ready for release on "Parts on Demand" (POD) in FPX file format next week along with 225,000 other part numbers to kick off the opening of the POD website. Parts on Demand will be free download for all our Library Expert Professional customers and we'll take requests to build parts for free (initially) to populate the POD website.
