Hi, have created a few footprints for hand soldering, but now progressing to getting boards made that use the footprints I’ve created.
In the learning process for creating position files it occurred to me that I might not have created my footprints with pick n place in mind.
My searches yielded nothing useful on the topic.
When drawing a footprint from a data sheet is there a clue on a data sheet that might show me where to reference the center or pickup point of the physical component that i might have been missing?
Is there a way to know how to center a component?
Once i do know the center do i just center it in the footprint editor on the blue cross or is there a location i need to mark?
Other than these questions pretty happy comfy with the footprint editor i think.
Any assistance appreciated.
