  • Calculator:
    • Added another “Add to FPX” toolbar icon close to the OK button
    • Changed the Reset button to Clear and the Reference button to Demo
    • The letter “R” was added to the Footprint Naming convention for Reversed Order Pins
    • Removed the Mirror option for Through-hole component families
  • FP Designer:
    • Added a new feature that replaces special characters in Part number with underscore or hyphen when using the Part Number to generate the Footprint Name
    • Updated and relocated the “Done” button to the “OK” button to match the Calculator UI
    • Added a Sample Part
  • Help:
    • Updated the IPC-7351B and C Land Pattern Naming Convention documents
    • Updated the “Important FPX Guidelines” document
  • Allegro / OrCAD PCB:
    • Add support for 17.2
    • STEP Files will be put out and referenced using a file extension containing only lowercase letters. The other translators will work as they always have.
    • When STEP goes to output a file, it will check if one exists and delete it, instead of simply overwriting. This will ensure that Allegro/OrCAD PCB will always put out lowercase .STEP extensions.
  • General:
    • Fixed a bug introduced in V2016.05 that would cause wrong corner pad radius values to be generated
