Sorry if this topic exist, but I can not found it in the forum.
I want to put a LCD in my board. The LCD is a standard 16x2 character display, paralel protocol.
When I put only the LCD, in schematic is fine, but in 3D appears “floating”. So I need the pin headers, male and female. That’s good because I need them in the BOM too.
This is the only way I know to make electrical connections “upper” to board.
If I put in schematic a simbol for pin headers, in layout I have these footprints, but these footprints are the same holes for the LCD footprint (i mean same holes for electrical connections). I think is not correct put a footprint over on another footprint.
Whats the correct way to make this?
The final solution should have a schematic with clearly connection to LCD, layout with only LCD holes but in 3D view with headers in a proper location.
TIPS: LCD layout has a mounting holes, that I need too in layout. The final BOM should have all the components needed for mounting so i need the pin headers appears in it, and 3D view is only for create a documentation of the board.
