Partquest Project Template for PADS VX.1 with xDX Databook

Version 7

    Want to get started designing quickly with PartQuest and PADS VX.1 with xDX Databook?

     

    1. Open xDX Designer for PADS VX.1, install the PADS Standard PartQuest Tools by going to Tools> Import PartQuest Parts
    2. Close xDX Designer
    3. 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
    4. Start xDX Designer and select the PartQuest template (download below this text), a new Project will be created ready to go!
    5. 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!
