Hi,

I am using coilcrafts transformers in my design. The footprint of the transformer is given in the file attached (sorry, the website was not letting me add a weblink of the same, as this is my first post. Only from the 2nd post I can add links in my posts.)
You can see that the pads are hexagonal in shape. How can I create this shape in OrCAD Layout. It gives option to only create standard shapes, like round,square, rectangle etc.
Can anybody tell me how to do it or if you already have the footprint to that part and you can share it, it would be great.

Thanks,
rahul

actually ORCAd is unique that the pad could be any shape defined with DXF. So you can define your shape in DXF and set the pad to be that shape - there are no limitations. SO the right approach is to create hexagone shape in DXF format and then to create custom pad from this DXF
