    Expedition PCB: Script to generate custom Pick and Place File in Excel with custom properties?

    charl.peters

      Hi,

       

      I am quite new to automation and scripting and started writing a script based on examples from the installation files.

      I need to output a Pick and Place file from a Expedition PCB Board in Excel format containing the following information:

      Ref Des, Mount Type (SMD / Through Hole), X Coordinate, Y coordinate, Rotation, Side (Top / Bottom), Custom Property.

       

      Now I managed to get all the info except for the Custom Property. The Components in the PCB Design containsa custom property callled "Store_Number".

      I need to extract this value for each component and add to the Pick and Place.

       

      I have attached what I ahve done so far.

       

      Any help wouold be much appreciated.

       

      Regards,

       

      Charl.
