I have changed or edited the standard Electrolytic capacitor to add a size.
I am surprised I had to do this, and would think there is a way to change the size, when you select “variants” of the parts.
I specifically need an 8mm diameter cap, THT, with .6mm leads which are 3.5mm apart and centered of course.
I’ll link the datasheet ( mechanical spec), in case that statement is not clear enough.
I couldn’t see how to move pads, or change the pin size, or change the footprint from Fritzing itself.
Other than editing the part. So I edited the part.
I editted the pcb’s svg file in a text editor. (Inkscape usually messes it up).
First I converted everything to millimeters. There was three different different measurement systems in the original file, and I can’t think like that.
I guessed the size of the pad drill size (pin size plus .1 mm)? and the pad size ( .2 mm)?
Is this close to the correct definition of those pads?
