Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to create a new component footprint within the current PCB Library document, in a semi-automated way, by using the Footprint Wizard.


This command is accessed from the PCB Library Editor by:

  • Choosing the Tools » Footprint Wizard command from the main menus.
  • Right-clicking in the workspace and choosing the Tools » Footprint Wizard command from the context menu.


After launching the command, the Footprint Wizard opens. Follow the Wizard's intuitive pages to set up the particular component footprint as required.


  1. A new blank component can also be added to the library by using the Create New Blank Component command.
  2. If your components are required to be IPC-compliant, you can use the IPC Compliant Footprint Wizard or IPC Compliant Footprints Batch Generator commands.
