I would like to know if is possible to download the footprint library ( file *.dra and *.psm) of the most popular component.
I can not manually create each footprint!!! The standard footprint in \SPB_16.6\share\pcb\pcb_lib\symbols are not enough.
Can someone help me???
There are lots avaliable. Many component manufacturers provide PCB Footprints in dra format. There are also free and paid for tools to create IPC7351A footprints. Look for EDA Builder, Ultra Librarian or PCB Libraries.
In reply to steve:
I really have to learn where to get footprints. I've looked, and I've tried to use the ultra librarian thing, but most of the time, I strike out on finding a good, ready-made footprint. I've had to manually draw EVERYTHING - even footprints for simple stuff like 0603 resistors, caps, etc. The footprint libraries that come with Orcad are pretty antiquated at best.
In reply to David Yackman:
There are a few starter libraries around or get some of the free / paid for tools to create footprints for you. Here's a link to a starter database. You need to check that they match your requirementts. http://www.parallel-systems.co.uk/support/pcb-footprints
