Tens of Millions of Footprints & 3D Models for FREE

May 11, 2017

Anthem, AZ – PCB Libraries, an industry leader in CAD library development, automation, and management, just released a major improvement to its free Library Expert – build as many 3D STEP models as you want. What before only generated free, unlimited footprints, now also creates 3D models – for tens of millions of parts!

The Library Expert Lite supports 180 different Standard component families. If you’re still using massive, old libraries with obsolete parts, switch to something far more nimble and robust, it costs absolutely nothing:

Extra features:

  • Definable Pin 1 Polarity Marking shape, size and location or Auto-generation
  • IPC-7351 recommended pattern or manufacturer-recommended pattern option
  • 23 CAD tool interfaces
    • Allegro, Altium, Board Station, CADint, CADSTAR, CR5000, CR8000, Design Spark, DIP Trace, Eagle, KiCad, McCAD, OrCAD Layout, OrCAD PCB, P-CAD, PADS, Pantheon, Proteus, Pulsonix, Solo PCB, TARGET 3001!, Ultiboard, Xpedition
  • 3D STEP output
    • User selectable material condition for Least, Nominal or Maximum dimensions
    • User controls the Body, Lead and Polarity color assignment (when different than default)
    • User definable lead length for all through-hole parts
  • No purchased license or registration required
  • Training videos for every feature (70 total)
  • Print feature prints component and land pattern dimensions
  • Many other features…

“If you’re not automating, someone else is. This is a 3D model revolution in the PCB library and design industry as the possibilities are endless,” said Tom Hausherr, CEO of PCB Libraries. You can create footprints and 3D models from simple component dimensions for tens of millions of parts, all compatible with every CAD or CAM tool – right on your desktop. At absolutely no cost.
