I have created a schematic symbol, pcb footprint and 3D part for a component.
For my convenience I wish to make the part atomic, that is to say, symbol, footprint and 3d shape all linked.
I’m having trouble with the symbol-footprint association:
In schematic library editor, I have added the footprint to the footprint filter field in the properties dialog. I used the correct def format “FootprintLibrary:FootprintName”.
This seems to have added the following lines to the .lib file:
When I add the part in Eeschema, the footprint field is blank. I have to run CvPcb to make the association.
I wonder if footprint filter list is not the correct place to make the atomic art footprint definition.
