I have to create a footprint for a part for which the datasheet is given limited details. I have the X and Y co-ordinates for all the pads given in the datasheet. So I do have to place all the pads one by one taking X, Y co-ordinate from the datasheet. It consumes most of my time if the pin count is more than 50.
So, is it possible to import any text file to allegro in which all the pin location is provided to place all the pins in one shot? And how to map the padstack in this case?
Hope someone can help me out.
Thanks & Regards

Thanks a lot for your quick reply.
Unfortunately this step is not working for me. I have some doubts actually:-
1. Do I need to selct the padstack before running the script?
2. Do I need to delete the "pick rel grid" command got generated in the Text file?
In reply to Arun Koyyan:
NO, you don't need to pick the padstack. When you recorded the script, you recorded the entire process to place two pins with the required padstack from the Padstack list, in the required location(s). You did do that? Maybe not...
Of course, the drawing parameters will need to be set to allow the pin parameters you need..
Maybe placing 500 pins manually would be a better way?

I have one more continues task to create some shapes in Footprint. The reference I have is the component size. that is ASSEMBLY_TOP.
And I have to add 3 shapes to this footprint.
1. Package Geometry/Display Top (Expand ASSEMBLY_TOP to 375 um)
2. Package Geometry/DFA_Bound top (Expand ASSEMBLY_TOP to 75 um)
3. Package Geometry/Place bound top (Same as ASSEMBLY_TOP)
I have tried this recording the Z-Copy option. Unfortunately it is not working since it is getting stuck during Pick command.
Can anyone help me out?
