The programmer that created PCBL Toolbar has retired and he is in the UK and he has all the code.

PCB Libraries, Inc. is 100% focused on creating an automated global solution to Footprints and 3D model creation for 21 different CAD tools.

My take on this is that you should ask Mentor Graphics to create a Toolbar for PADS Layout V9. This is not rocket science and they have all the code and programmers that can easily do this.

Isn't there a PADS feature wish list anymore? Why do people pay yearly maintenance for? Bug fixes?

I've downloaded PCBL Toolbar but no effects - "Could Not connect to a running PADS Layout Application" - could you attach a Toolbar which works with PADS9.2? Thank you in advance!

I tried to download the PADS Productivitiy Kit to see if I could add some outlines or maybe convert for other CAD SW, but I am not able to download. I am logged in and If I push the "PADS Productivitiy Kit button" it seems that the PCBL Members Download PAge is loaded again but nothin else happens.

Best regards
Erwin

Hello Tom,

Thank you for the quick reply! Smile

I already know these modeless commands. I was just curious of the "bells and whistles" and thought/hoped this tool could have been updated for the version 9.4.
So I will go on with the modeless commands...

Thank you once again and greets from Germany,
Patrick

Use the PADS Modeless Command "Z".
 
Z1 = Turn off all layers except Layer 1
ZA = Turn all layers On
 
Try all the "Z" options and let us know if that works for you.
 
I know it does not have all the bells and whistles as the "PCB Libraries Toolbar"  but that program was written by Phillip Restall in the UK and he's not around anymore. MIA.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

is there a way to get a working PCBL_Toolbar for PADS 9.4?
Otherwise could you please suggest an alternative tool?

Thx in advance and best regards,
Patrick

Tom,
 
That's the one I already have, but I reloaded this one and had the same issue. Guess I'll have to live with it.
 
Thanks   ---  Roger

The PCI Express Full-Mini card is not available, but if you create it and send it to us, we'll add it to the collection. Smile

I looked at the Pads Productivity Kit for a PCI ExpressFull-Mini (F1 or F2) Card outline. Unfortunately it was not in the Kit. Any chance one is available?
Thanks! RLS2004
