  • CAD Interfaces:
    • KiCad: crashes building PADS-to-CAD parts
  • 3D STEP Output:
    • STEP file was not saving to selected output directory in some cases for most CAD tools
  • Options:
    • Terminals > Surface Mount > Inward L Flat Ribbon – had duplicate terminal option
    • Components > Through-hole > Mounting Holes had an unnecessary dropdown for Origin
    • Turning off Drafting > Courtyard > Add Outline to Footprint did not work as intended

  • Calculators:
    • QFN – the silkscreen outline was not adhering to the Clearance Option
    • LCC – The pad length calculations need to be adjusted
    • QFN with Thermal – Rotating the footprint so Pin 1 is Upper Left but the thermal chamfer was in Lower Left
