It would be very helpful to have a preview of the footprints directly in the component browser.

It would be nice to have  align-bottons to align the parts. Like Ultiboard or LabView!

I'd like to see a panelization option in Ultiboard, perhaps similar to the one in Altium (http://wiki.altium.com/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=4426668). Preferably with an option to panelize multiple different designs onto a single panel, choice of V-groove's / scoring, break-off tabs, etc.

There are much more footprints of connectors available in Ultiboard than in Multisim. To create a correct circuit diagramm I need the same foortprints in Multisim. There are not enough connectors in Multisim.

It would be very helpful to have all the connectors in Multisim too!

In Ultiboard it is possible to export a 3D IGES, but it is not possible to import these 3D IGES files in to Solid Edge or Solid Works. It would be a big improvement of Ultiboard if this was possible in the next update.

Hi,

 

the idea is that the colors of nets in Multisim will be automatically set for different nets. For example the ground net will automatically be black, the power supply (plus) red and so on... Maybe there is a way to save the user's preference in a config-file?

 

Thanks a lot

By default the soldermask Top and Bottom for a troughhole Via in Ultiboard are checked. It would be nice if I could select in the global preferences or PCB proberties of Ultiboard what I want for default for all the via's I place on the design.

Now, when my design is ready I have to think that I should uncheck the soldermask Top and Bottom of all via's on the design and when I did that and place a via the soldermask for this new placed via is checked for Top and Bottom.

Hi,

 

it should be possible to expand ultiboard with user functions like the ulp's from eagle.

My intend is to generate coils or fuses automatically on the pcb copper layer (wires).

 

There should be a user interface to get the parameter and the coordinates for the placement, number of windings, frequency ...

 

Regards

Thomas
