While this piece is optional, it helps to provide a visual indicator for your manufacturer when they are assembling parts on your bare board. Name and Value. These text elements are placeholders and will come in handy during your PCB layout stage. Step 1 — Creating Your New Package Alright, time to get rolling with the tutorial part of this guide. The very first step you need to complete is creating a new package in your library.
This will open your Library Window. From here, choose the Package icon to open the Edit Dialog. Next, enter a name for your package in the New: field and select OK. Great, so with that complete you now have your first very package added to your personal library and a blank Package Editor should be open as shown below.
Using EAGLE: Board Layout
Changing the grid size will allow you to quickly and precisely place pads according to your datasheet measurements. Select the Grid icon in the top-left corner of your interface. Select OK to save your grid settings. You just need to zoom in a bit with the Zoom in icon until it becomes visible again.
Step 3 — Deciphering Your Datasheet Alright, time for some datasheet detective work. This page will give you all the information you need to precisely place your pads. Looking at our datasheet, this is clearly labeled in the bottom-left corner of page It looks like our pad dimension is 0. The pad dimension is easy to find in this datasheet. Pad Pitch — The pad pitch is the distance between the two of two pads on both the X and Y axis.
Again, your datasheet has this clearly labeled in the top-left corner of page 25, under the label Example Board Layout. The pad pitch is always measured from the center of two pads. You can use the existing pad dimension chart to create an easy to use XY graph for your pad placement. The good news is that you only need to get the coordinate position of one pad and the rest will naturally follow.
How would you get this value? When you first start Eagle Point, you are in the project manager shown to the left. Click bottom left icon to create a new project. Select the type of item to create e. Enter the project drawing name. See note below. This selection will be kept for all future projects until you select a different one. The prototype drawing field will be filled-in automatically.
Click Finish. Each project should be in its own folder i. Highlight the desired project and click OK or click in the slide view to the right. If this list becomes lengthy, you can limit the display by using filters. Highlight the desired project, enter a new description, and click OK. Edit all the default settings for objects constructed in CAD. Eagle Point uses the horizontal scale value in determining size of the text placed in the drawing e.
Horizontal scale divided by vertical scale is used as a vertical stretch factor while creating profiles e. The instructions below assume you have started the tool and the Process Library window is open.
Selecting library to use A library has been created for your use. Click OK. You can collapse or expand either window by clicking on its title bar. The "Processes" window contains a tree structure with a list of processes, tasks and steps.
To use the library, simply follow the instructions below Highlight the desired process. Be sure to read any notes in the description area. You will normally step through the tasks and steps in a process from top to bottom.
Highlight the desired task. Read and perform any instructions given in the description area. Highlight the desired step. If the step has a command associated with it indicated by icon , you can double-click on it to invoke the command and then follow the instructions given in the description area.
Simply do the tasks and steps in the order given for that process. These are described below. Point Number, Description, and Elevation are plotted to the right of the node in this style. Bank, Waterline, etc. These features are listed on the yellow sheet of the Field Code Cards. MoControl Point: Point Number, Description, and Elevation are plotted to the right of the node in this style and the Northing and Easting coordinates are plotted to the left of the node.
These features are listed on the blue sheet of the Field Code Cards. The field codes that utilize this style include such entries as Building, Power Poles, Buried Utilities, etc.
These features are listed on the green sheet of the Field Code Cards. Below is an example of this. This is a typical plot of survey points. The V. CLIN layer represents the centerline symbol. So, for this example, if you were to freeze all the V. The drawing would become less cluttered and it would be much easier to draw your centerline from node to node as shown in this figure. To set the default printer, select Start Windows start button , Printers and Faxes; right click on the desired printer and then select Set as Default.
Select Printer. Set other settings i. Eagle, Products, Tools, Layer Commands This menu includes utilities that allow you to set the current layer to that of a selected entity, to find out list what layer a node or entity is on, and freeze the layer of a selected entity.
The horizontal scale affects size of text placed by Eagle Point. Since the size of any text placed by Eagle Point e. This will load the data collection menu and toolbar. The tasks listed below assume you are working from this menu and toolbar.
Prepare data collector: Connect data collector e. Check that data collector settings are correct: Top Modem: No Baud Rate: Not set Stop bit: Job name: Enter a descriptive name of data to be downloaded. Select collector you are using. Serial Port: Baud Rate: Select rate to match that of collector. Data Bits: Select to match that of collector. This screen appears instructing you to prepare data collector.
On data collector, select job to download in "Communications Send or Output. Press key on computer and then key on collector 30 sec. Data should begin scrolling across screen. If not, check that communication settings on collector and computer match. Once download is complete, press a key on the computer. If the download window is not active, click in it to make it active and then press a key. You should then be returned to the Data Collection dialog box. Remember to shut off data collector if finished.
Select the desired job name to edit. The field book editor should then load. The editor operates similar to a spreadsheet editor. You simply move the cursor to the desired cell or field and make your changes. A record or row is comprised of a tag and its corresponding value. Some examples of tags are as follows: Point number SH: Staff rod height XC: X Easting coordinate YC: Y Northing coordinate ZC: Z elevation coordinate PD: Point description code To determine what any other tag code means, position the cursor on the tag or the data field of that tag.
The status line bottom of your screen will display the description of that tag. To change text throughout the whole file e. Enter desired information. To delete a line i. To insert a row, highlight row to insert new row above and select Tools, Insert Row or click icon.
To search for a string, select Edit, Find , press Ctrl-F, or click icon and then enter text or tag desired. A common error that occurs in a survey is an incorrect rod height.
How to correct it depends on what type of data was downloaded, either POS position: This can be done individually for each point or for all of them by using Global edit and adding a positive value raising or a negative value lowering to the elevation field. See example below. Choose method for selecting nodes.
Single, Range, Description, or All Enter values based on method chosen. Select action: Add, Multiply, or Set Enter appropriate value. Click Apply. For OBS data, you can simply correct the rod i. When the data is reduced, the elevations computed will then be correct. When finished editing, select File, Exit and answer Yes to save. Enter a job name for the imported points. Enter the file name or click the folder icon to browse to the folder.
This format is Point , Northing, Easting, Elevation, Description so the file being imported should match that format. Reduction settings MENU: Change various settings e.
Reduce MENU: This processes a data file into the drawing i. Check data in plan view and, if so desired, in elevation view AutoCAD command: This will load the data transfer menu and toolbar. Importing a file here will not do any field code or line work processing. If your descriptions contain field coding that you want processed, use the Data Collection routine. Enter or select the desired file.

Click Close to remove the selection window. The nodes are listed in another window as shown below. You can change a column width or hide it completely by dragging the line to the right of a column header left or right. You can also click to print the list. Select the columns to print by clicking on the box under the Print column. Click Print. The report to the left shows that node numbers 5 through 49, 51 through and those greater than are not being used. This routine will assist in fixing duplicate node numbers.
All duplicate node numbers are listed. Click to print the list. Select the method to use to handle the duplicate nodes: You can keep the highlighted node s , renumber it, delete it them , or average the highlighted nodes.
Click Apply after selecting nodes and method. This will load the surface modeling menu and toolbar. Notes on breaklines NOTE: Any line meeting the following criteria is considered a break line by the program. A break line is a line between two points that indicates a straight grade exists between those two points. The program will not allow a triangle side to cross this line. Adding a new model ICON: To load prototype settings from a library, click on the icon and see below for further instructions.
Enter a description for the surface model. Change minimum and maximum elevations, if needed. If you enter a description and then load prototype settings from the library, you will need to re-enter your description because it will be overwritten. Answer Yes to the prompt you get about over writing your current settings. Select surface model. If using a boundary, select appropriate type. If using void regions, select appropriate type.
Select desired options Click Apply to build the surface model. Select the objects you want to use in making the surface model. If a boundary or void regions were chosen, select those objects. The boundary and void regions must be closed polylines.
Once a Surface Model is made, it can be used for the following applications: Select surface model to track. Move cursor around area where surface model should be. If no elevation is shown, there is a problem with the surface model.
If elevations are shown, make sure they are correct. Use preview to display the contours before actually placing them in the drawing. This will allow you to determine any problems with the surface model.
The problem can then be corrected via breaklines, editting nodes, etc. Once the preview is acceptable, create the desired contours using the actions below. Select the Surface Model. Select desired options. Make User Defined Contours allows you to have a user specified contour line created e. Contours — annotate MENU: Select desired surface model. Choose which contours to annotate. Select which method to use: Change settings: CAD Settings: If the crossing method is used, you need to pick the start and end points for a line that intersects the contour where you want the contour label.
This will load the profiles menu and toolbar.
Changing the scales after adding a PCS results in the coordinates being incorrect. Select the desired PCS and click Close to make it active. See dialog window below. Enter a name for the PCS. You can either key in X and Y values or click PIC button and select a point graphically in the drawing.
This point should be in a blank area of your drawing. Enter the station and elevation corresponding to the X and Y values. Select desired orientation usually will be left to right.

Click OK and then Close from the setup window. Select the object i. This will usually be the same entity that is being profiled. However, it can be different. For example, if you are profiling the channel upstream and want to base the stationing on the centerline of the dam, you can select the centerline alignment for stationing. If the selected object to base stationing on is not an alignment, you are asked to click near the beginning of the alignment and enter the starting station BOP.
The profile should be created and placed according to the current PCS. You may need to zoom or pan to see the profile. Construct - Profile From Object This option will extract the elevations directly from an entity in the drawing.
This requires the entity to be 3-D e. Select the entity i. This option allows you to place a grid with stations and elevations onto a profile. Enter the desired grid setting values.
First, The Basics
After entering desired values, click OK and select the lower left point of the grid.This balance routine will project the slopes for you. Instead of setting each of those manually, you can load up a set of design rules using a DRU file. Don't intersect the dimension layer with any holes, or they'll be cut off! Here's an example of a fully-routed board: See if you can do a better job than that!
Plot Scales before adding a PCS. Remember those green rings are exposed copper on both sides of the board, if copper overlaps, streams will cross and short circuits will happen.
Enter a name for the PCS. The Profile module is used when you would like to draw a profile and annotate it.
