Still after a week not a single crash. 4.07 crashed about every time I used it.
v5 still lacks a lot of 3D models: my board is almost empty in v5. Only capacitors and resistors. No LED’s, no SOT housings etc.
The only weird thing I discovered are SOT-23-5 and similar chips are that I was used to having pin numer 1-5 for these symbols, but now the footprint uses pins 1,2,3,4 and 6! So I had to change my symbols!!
I wonder if that is intentional or just a mistake !
Sounds like a ‘problem’ with the footprint generator.
It leaves out pin #5 but doesn’t remove one from the count for physical pin 6, so it is being applied #6 instead of #5.
Might pay to visit the library on github and post a bugreport there, to see what the people in charge think of it?!
You have to be very carefull with these small SMD footprints.
Most often pins are numberd counter clockwise, but sometimes they are numbered clockwise.
It’s a lack of standardisation. Hopefullly this has improved over the years, but it is one of the things that unfortunately have to be checked carefully to be sure.
Over the last few years the packages of small SMD resistors and capacitors is becoming ambiguous.
A “0603” can be “metric” or “imperial”, with a big impact on size.
Sometimes there are also (very) small differences in pitch between seemingly similar packages.
Stuff like this is one of the many resons that you should never rely on standard libraries for a final PCB design. Always make a separate library for a project, or maintain your own set of verified libraries for schematic symbols and footprints.
