Hi! Fritzing newbie here with a question about an existing component, the Camdenboss CTB0158-x family of pluggable screw terminals. First, this specific component seems to be no longer available, and the similar parts I found on Amazon have significantly different dimensions (i.e. silkscreen outline doesn’t match part). This alone wouldn’t be a showstopper, but the hole size is much too small. The holes appear to be sized for a normal header pin, not the much larger (~1.3mm) pins of this type of connector. Drilling out the holes would have removed the through-hole plating, so I had to file the pins down to fit (not something I want to do very often).
I haven’t yet attempted to climb the learning curve of modifying the part or creating a new one, so I thought I’d check with the Forum first to see if there’s an easier solution.
Note that the Properties description of the part includes “Hole size 2.7mm”. Obviously that’s not right…
On the bright side, I was able to install Fritzing, design the attached PCB, and have it fabricated in less than 2 weeks. How cool is that?
Thanks for any help!
