i tried to make a part and used the mm measurements from the datasheet (hand crafted svg cause inkscape constantly messed up the values). it displayed correctly in browsers, but guess what fritzing did. it ignored the mm unit and seemed to interpret the values as 100th of an inch. i then divided each of the values (by hand!!!) by 0.254, which should result in the right values, but again fritzing thinks that my units are not good enough and the part was a little bit too big (7 units, or 70 thou). i subtracted the 7 thou from the right side of the part, which finally made it fit (in the width). then i tried to export, to validate that the pads are at the correct location, and fritzing strikes again. the text i had in the silkscreen is teeny tiny (displayed fine in the pcb view though).
What I expected should have happened instead:
i expected fritzing to work with the given units, and to display the font on the export like it displayed it in the pcb view. whats so hard about that? i wasted my whole day on that part because fritzing just completely stood in my way. guess i should write my own software (with blackjack and hookers)
My version of Fritzing and my operating system:
the now completely ruined svg is attached (oh wait i cant see an attach button… greaaaat)
