Eagle Bib: Edge-soldering on PCB
« on: February 20, 2016, 03:58:16 pm »
Hi,
I want to create a custom footprint for Eagle to solder a sensor on the side of the pcb. THe Sensor has a TO-46 Case. I need the sensor on the edge of the pcb. so I want to solder it like a smd part. How can I create a foodprint in eagle that will know that there are contacts on the bottom and the top of the board?
cheers

Use smd pads on the top layer and the bottom layer.
In the package editor, type "help mirror".

The help command is a command to open the manual. You add an attribute in the form of a topic.
So, if you enter the command "help mirror", it will open the manual at the position where the "mirror" command
is explained. The mirror command is used to mirror objects. In the pcb or package editor, this means it will be put
on the opposite layer.

In Eagle, al tools and commands can be entered as text with options.
So, every icon you normally click on, to activate some tool, as it's own command name.
One way to easily find the command name is to keep the mouse stil above an icon.
A small tooltip will popup with the name.
