Native slotted holes are now supported for Zuken eCADSTAR




Engineers can now access footprints with natively generated slotted holes for eCADSTAR on SnapEDA. Previously, engineers needed to send the drill shape information to the PCB fabrication house when using slotted holes. With this new conversion, the slotted holes are now defined as a native pad to help you save additional steps during design.

Slotted holes are used to allocate wider pins. Some components with wider pins are various switches or relays and connectors with mounting pegs, alignment pins or thermal shield tails.

To start downloading eCADSTAR parts, including those with the new native holes, simply find the part you need on SnapEDA, select Download Symbol and footprint > eCADSTAR and follow our Import Guide to add the part to your design.
