Import model files

I've downloaded from the partner sites (given on NI website) parts and footprints models for Multisim 10 and Utilboard 10. Where (with path) should I place those files to be visible in the both mentioned programs ?

Hi Mcgiwer,

 

This depends on the file format of the footprints and models. If they are PRZ files, you can import them by just by opening them in Windows. An import utility should come up and guide you through the import process. You will have the option of importing the data into your corporate or user database.

 

If they are not PRZ files, let us know and we will direct you in the right direction.

The Multisim 10 models are .prz and the Utilboard 10 ones are .EWPrj

To import the footprints to Ultiboard, try the following:

  1. Open the EWPrj file in Ultiboard
  2. Click on Tools>>Database>>Database Manager
  3. Click on button that looks like a yellow plus sign with an arrow (see attached image)
  4. Ultiboard will find all the footprints in the opened design and will allow you to select the ones you want to import
