I am designing a simple PCB on KiCAD to be manufactured. On the footprint editor in the schematic window, there are descriptions and links provided to the product the footprint. However, when I use the measure tool on KiCAD to measure the dimension of the footprint, it does not match the dimensions of the datasheet of the product on the website (or it might be that I am misunderstanding the technical drawing)
My specific case: I am using the footprint of BNC_TEConnectivity_1478204_Vertical, (https://www.te.com/usa-en/product-1-1478204-0.html?source=header-match)
There’s the component that says the legs are 8mm apart, however there are also mounting holes (which matches the dimensions in the schematic, about 6.3mm), I’m a little confused, what is the difference?
