Mounting machine output with variants [message #170225] Fri, 07 April 2017 11:50 Go to next message

Hello,

I did some research on that topic but didnt find anything, so my question:
i was searching for a script that outputs coordinates for mounting machines respecting the variants from the schematic, but it seems variants only exists in schematics and not in boards.
Is this possibly with a custom ULP? Or am i missing something?

Thanks in advance,
Andreas

Hi Andreas,

I hope you're doing well today. For most people the mountsmd.ulp that
comes with EAGLE gives the centroid data necessary for most pick and
place machines. If not it can usually be massaged into something the
machine will accept.

As a side not most of the support staff hangs out on our new forums
linked below. I encourage you to check them out.

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

Best Regards,
Jorge Garcia

Hi Jorge,
thanks for your response. I already adapted the mountsmd.ulp for our needs, but i am still missing a function:

We use "variants" in our schematics, and i can't find an option to account for these variants in the pick-and-place output from the board.
Will try to post this question in the new forums.

Best regards,
Andreas
