Library Expert's output to Altium Designer has a new “Script” interface; can import footprints and 3D Step into an existing library or a new library with one part at a time or 10,000 parts in minutes. Automatically applies user-defined user preferences for pad shapes for each component family, working units, drafting outlines, footprint Pin 1 zero orientation, construction rules, solder joint goals and layer assignments. Has a footprint designer; can create footprints using manufacturer recommended pattern data. Pads ASCII still an option, but no longer required. Outputs to formats readable by Allegro, OrCAD PCB, OrCAD Layout, CADint, DesignSpark, Expedition, Pads Layout, Cadstar, CR-5000, Pantheon, Pulsonix, P-CAD, Ultiboard, Target 3001!, Eagle, DipTrace, Board Station, SoloPCB, and Proteus. Outputs 3D Step models readable by an increasing number of CAD tools.
