    I am trying to use a few components on diptrace and don't know how to go about it. I see that you can make patterns and such, but I am pretty lost and I need to figure this out quickly. I find it hard to believe that people make custom components for pretty much everything besides the basics. I have looked into this and it is still confusing.

    These are the components

    Voltage Regulator:

    LM317TFS-ND http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/LM317T/LM317TFS-ND/458678

    SSR:

    CLA279-ND http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/CPC1708J/CLA279-ND/1277134

    Thanks!

    Yes I do make my own most of the time. I have found so many problems with installed libs I prefer to make my own. Prevents a respin of a £400 PCB most of the time. But I will sometimes use the lib components and modify them and then double check.

    That's what I did. Figured it out although it was a pain to make nearly all of the ones I needed besides the basic resistors and diodes. I modified existing ones like you often do.thx

    Basic components like diodes and resistors should be there. I have found diptrace to have a very exstensive component selection.
