Devices with Cylindrical End Cap terminations should have different groups of toe/heel/side solder goals based on device height/length/width.

This has been done with rectangular end cap devices and should similarly be done for cylindrical.

There's no reason to have a part that is twice the size have the same toe/heel/side solder goals. This leads to wildly undersized or oversized pads.

We granted your wish and turned MELF solder joint goals into incremental pad stacks per the Nominal Diameter in V24.02 pre-release dated today 12/22/2023. 

New Nominal Diameter Ranges –

  • Dia. < 1.00
  • Dia. >= 1.00, < 2.00
  • Dia. >= 2.00, < 3.00
  • Dia. >= 3.00, < 4.00
  • Dia. > 4.00
Now you can control the Toe, Heel and Side for MELF Resistors, Diodes and Fuses. 

Thank you for recommending this feature. 

V24.02 will be officially released next week - www.pcblibraries.com/downloads
