In this video, learn how to build a simple schematic symbol from scratch in a custom schematic library.
- So let's start off by creating…a fairly simple Library Component.…As an example, let's generate a capacitor.…So the first thing I might want to do…is just change the properties of the component itself.…So here I could see all the list of components…within my library and I can add additional, delete,…edit, and so-on.…Right now I just have one component called Component.…And I can edit that if I'd like.…That will jump me into my component properties here…so I can change the name, designator,…additional properties, parameters, pins, and so-on.…
So a whole number of properties I can change here.…I'll just change a few.…Maybe I'll call the Design Item ID maybe Cap101.…And the description, just the capacitor there.…Maybe the designator as well I probably want to start a C.…And so on and I can change out of my own custom parameters,…edit any pins that may be there, add pins, and so-on.…Pin names, pin numbers, and everything like that.…But for now I'm just going to change…the design item ID and the description.…
And I can see that coming into my library list as well.…
