How can I see if a Cell in the library has 3D information attached to it?
My library has 4000+ Cells and it would be nice to see which Cell has 3D information and which not.
I'm using PADS Pro VX.2.7.
This not usable.
Part Number = 5557969-1
Cell name = TE CONNECTIVITY_5557969-1
3D Model Name = c-5557969-1-d-3d
It is impossible to look this up in the directory for 4000+ Cells. The attached Model Name could be each Model name.
So if I look in the directory I can not say which Model belongs to which Cell.
I think this is only single way to do this(
3D models management is poor in PADS proOther crazy way is create project were you place all of your library components then you can view mappings in Layout (3D-->Models-->Manage mappings)
I'm now converting Xpedition VX.1.1 boards to PADS Pro VX.2.7 so on ever board I will put the 3D models in.
For the rest I will create an empty board and put different components in and place the 3D models.
Maybe Mentor will create an better 3D management tool in PADS Pro VX.2.8........
