Topic: Connectors

Hi guys,
It would be usefull to have a method to generate automatically a list of connectors starting from the pins present. In older versions (0.x.x) of the qet_tb_generator were present something like that but in newer ones there is no more present ( see post attached ). I tried to run the version 0.7.14 but it doesn't generate neither terminal bar nor connectors while the same project with the version 1.0.16 generate correctly the terminal bar.
what do you suggest to do?
I use qet v0.70-RC1.

Hi Galexys, the Xref ending by a point are found as implicits connections. Later I'll test your QET file and check why.

In previous versions, the xref refers to the terminal, and now refers to the connected element. The up and down connections depens of the orientation of the terminal in the diagram. If rotates, will change on the terminal strip.

I 've implement a "Connectors" option. In the picture, shows that drawing the red part, we obtain the connector on the green part.

Could someone recommend me a diagram software that I can check to see how it implements  "Block terminals" and "Connectors"?. I need to see some ideas to implement the algorithm yet implemented in QET.

Re: Connectors

Hi,

the version 0.7.14 run only on QET 0.6, for 0.7RC1 you need qet_tb_generator 1.0.16.
I think Raul no addded connectors in latest version.
