In pick n place report(placement.txt) i need the info of type of the component whether it is Through hole or smd. Is their any option to create the report of that type
Part of the issue is that the components are not SM or THRU, it is the Pins that have that information. But, you can get what you need through a custom report, Tools>Report, New/Edit, in the Data Fields tab, select Logical Pin in the drop down and add the following fields:
REFDES_SORT, REFDES, SYM_X, SYM_Y, DRILL_HOLE_X
Save the file as "MyReport.txt", or some convenient name, in the current board directory. Close the Extract UI dialog, scroll down the Available Reports, the new report will be at the bottom, double-click to add it to the Selected Reports list, click Report to run the report. THRU parts will have a value for the DRILL_HOLE_X, SM parts will not.
You can amend the fields to get any other data. You could add some custom component fields and report on those but this will get the data without modifying anything else in the flow.
