I've a problem. I need to make an oblong drill for a special Footprint. The problem is, to make an oblong drill is not possible.
Thanks for the help.
Hmmm...it is possible. What is the question?
The Question is, how i define an oblong drill. In the pad properties i just can choose different form of pads, not for drills.
How can i make the drill oblong?
Thanks for help
In the Parameters tab of Pad Designer for the 'Drill/Slot hole' section select "Oval Slot". Add the Slot size X and Slot size Y dimensions plus any tolerances. Finish the padstack as you would any other padstack.When you create the drill files you will need to create an nc route file (Manufacturing >NC >NC Route)that tells the fab house how to create the slots.~Rik

Which is not needed if you use ODB++ where the slot information is embedded. :)
I have a problem. I have defined an oblong hole in the same way as you have insisted. But the same hole is not generated when an emn and emp file is imported in Proe and Autovue. Its taking the slot size X (smallest dia )and not reading the Slot size Y. Please suggest a solution.
