  • FP Designer:
    • Update the Print feature to add the package dimensions and pad stack data
  • CR-8000:
    • Added the ability for the new tArc code to work with Rounded Rectangles
  • Pulsonix:
    • Implemented the keepoutType keyword, which appears to be specific to Pulsonix PLX. A type of Comp is added for every Component Keepout, which will come from the Courtyard of the Part


  • P-CAD .LIA (covers DesignSpark, all P-CAD versions, and Pulsonix):
    • Fixed an issue where the plated value was being set to false for through-hole pad stacks.
    • Adjusted the code so that the Placement Courtyard gets translated as a PolyKeepout in the output. This should allow tools like Pulsonix to pull the keepout.
    • Fixed an issue with Polys with Arcs. They should now be fully described as points.
  • Pulsonix:
    • Adjusted the Courtyard Keepout to set its LayerNumRef to Courtyard_Top so that it hopefully picks up the keepout rules. This is only for Pulsonix and not the other PCAD variants.
  • CR-5000/CR-8000:
    • Added the start of functionality to allow for the tangent arc nomenclature for calling out Pad Outlines. Right now, it’s restricted to square rounded pads for testing purposes.
