What’s New in PADS Professional VX.2.6: Drill Chart Updates

As PCBs are becoming more complex, we’re seeing a demand for better control of the output data – including drill charts. In the latest update of PADS Professional, users can append the drill size to the drill character when generating the drill chart. This effectively enables a user to override the library drill symbol definition to attach the drill hole size to the end of the symbol. This enhancement to the NC Drill Process can be accomplished by simply toggling on “Use character as drill symbol” when generating the Drill Chart.
