Hi,

With 2021.04 PCB Footprint Expert FREE, I have a problem. 

The Build Footprint are NOT active, and not work.

I'm registered, I have the cloud active, but not able to export the footprint created.

The selected Cadence OrCAD PCB is the CAD tool. 

Please can help me? 

Thanks,
Gianni

I am very sorry that with the Free version it is no longer possible to export a single Footprint or 3D in OrCAD format.

I will continue to use the Free Viewer and hope it will remain Free.

Thanks for your reply and informations.
Gianni.

The Free Library Expert Pro is vastly superior to the Viewer. 

The Pro can calculate footprints and save the package data in a library and you have access to FP Designer.
