PCB Design: Associate PCB Patterns to Schematic Components

If you’ve worked with PCB Creator or DipTrace, you may have noticed when converting your finished schematic to a layout, some of your components have magically disappeared. This happens when schematic components don’t have a pattern layout associated. In this example, I’ll show you how to associate an existing pattern to a component for a simple power/ground wire-to-board connection.
