Pos file counts 6 components?


#1

Hi guys,

So i generated my pos file and it says 6 components, can this be because of the trough hole resistors i use?


#2

not - enough - information - to - work - with …


#3

ok, i have 94 components 4 SMD and 90 DIP/hole trough resistors. I when i generate the pos file (kicad 4.06) i get component count: 6

I have no idea why

The pos file is I think only for SMD components, but then you should have 4.

How many do you think you should have?


#5

I think so too, if i force it i get 6. Not sure why

This will cause footprints to be listed in the .pos file.
If you got the .pos file, just open it and check which components are inside… example:
