    raghavendra

      hi

                   i have attached a pick and place file of  a board in altium designer and the same can it be generated in pads layout using some macros.

      The reason is the pick and place machine accepts only this format.

      please suggest me a solution.

       

       

      thanks & regards

          Hi,

          normally it´s no problem to customize a existing macro like "XY Positions.bas" for example.

           

          Why need of so many X/Y positions for each part?

           

          "Mid" sounds like the real centre point (vb: Comp.CenterX / CenterY).

          "Ref" is the origin point of the part? (vb: Comp.PositionX / PositionY).

          What is "Pad"? Coordinates of Pin-1?

           

          Rg,

          Andy
