Issue

A drawing contains TrueType® text objects that are displayed as filled in the plot preview. However, in the hardcopy output, the TrueType text objects are plotted as outlines and are not filled.

Solution

To ensure TrueType® text is filled when plotted, configure the following settings:

  • Set the FILL command to on.
  • Set the FILLMODE system variable to 1.
  • Set the TEXTFILL system variable to 1.
  • In the Plot dialog box, clear Hide Objects.
  • Turn off the Hideplot property of the viewport
    Note: In AutoCAD 2004, 2005, and 2006-based products, turn off Shadeplot > Hidden Property of Viewport.

If these program settings do not resolve the problem, update your Windows system printer driver.

Schematic Symbol of Resistor

 Zip Archived file

RAR Archived file

The above picture is schematic representation/symbol of Resistor.

Unfortunately, my schematic software (PADS LOGIC) did not have such a component in its library; so I had to build the above component from scratch.

I used AutoCAD to build the above component and I save it as AutoCAD 12 DXF file.

To download the DXF file:

1. Click on the above image

2. Right Click on the Image

3. Save the image/picture to your harddisk

Extract the DXF File:

1. open winzip/winrar

2. File > open

3. browse to the save image file

OR

1. Open WinZip

2. Drag the image and drop it off inside the WinZip software.

NOTE: If you cannot follow the above steps, please refer to the following post: Extract Files embedded in Pictures

Importing AutoCAD DXF file into PADS library:

1. Open PADS LAYOUT

2. File > Import > browse to the above DXF file.

3. Once PADS has imported the file, highlight (select everything) the above component.

4. Right click on the selected component > combine

5. Right Click on the selected component > Add to library

6. Give this new shape (component) a name.

7. Close PADS LAYOUT

And you are done.

1. Open PADS LOGIC

2. Tools > Part Editor

3. Click on Edit graphics in the Part Editor Toolbar

4. Click OK to the message

5. Hit the Page Down button a few times to zoom out the screen

6. Click on Add 2D line from Library from in the Symbol editor Toolbar

7. Locate the above drawing and click OK to add it to the screen.

Now, you just have to either add pins or create some kind of shape around the above drawing to create your own custom component.

The above picture is the internal schematic representation of part number J0011D21B RJ45 jack from Pulse Inc. @ www.pulseeng.com.

I have came across this component during me design stage of Ethernet controller.

Unfortunately, my schematic software (PADS LOGIC) did not have such a component in its library; so I had to build the above component from scratch.

I followed the following steps to import AutoCAD DXF file into PADS library.

1. Open PADS LAYOUT

2. File > Import > browse to the above DXF file.

3. Once PADS has imported the file, highlight (select everything) the above component.

4. Right click on the selected component > combine

5. Right Click on the selected component > Add to library

6. Give this new shape (component) a name.

Now, you just have to either add pins or create some kind of shape around the above drawing to create your own custom component.

Note :: To obtain the DXF file, click on the above image and save the file to your harddisk. Then use WinZIP or winrar to extract the DXF file from the image. To do so:

1. open winzip

2. File > open

3. browse to the save image file

OR

1. Open WinZip

2. Drag the image and drop it off inside the WinZip software.
