Want to get started designing quickly with PartQuest and PADS VX.1 with xDX Databook?
- Open xDX Designer for PADS VX.1, install the PADS Standard PartQuest Tools by going to Tools> Import PartQuest Parts
- Close xDX Designer
- Unzip this file into your PADS WDIR_PADSVX_1.x directory, by default this directory is C:\PADS Projects
(The wdir is hardcoded to C:\PADS Projects for this template)
This will create a \template subdirectory if you don't have one already, and a \PartQuest subdirectory
- Start xDX Designer and select the PartQuest template (download below this text), a new Project will be created ready to go!
- Download Parts using PartQuest, and run Tools> Import PartQuest Parts to import the parts into the library
Now you have access to the hundreds of thousands of symbols and footprints complete with Digi-Key and Manufacturer part properties!
