  • Altium Components Placement - How to place the DIP socket over the MCU

    Hi, my issue is related to the course Learn to Design your own boards (Udemy), chapter 3 step 87:
    Robert places the MCU on the board and then snaps and rotate the DIP socket and place it on pin 1.

    I have an issue here because my DIP socket is not snaping the in the indicated position, so everytime I try to place it, a colision is indicated and on 3D view they are not on top of each other - please refer to attached pictures.

    Can you please guide me here so I can continue with the lessons?

    Best regards

    - 3D model position: Please, double check footprints. Looks like 3d model of the microcontroller is not moved up?

    - Snapping: Try CTRL+E and play with the settings. Altium keeps changing this, it can be very annoying

    PS: Do not forget to set exceptions, so you do not get the collisions

      robertferanec I would suggest using component classes for components that has 3D 'collisions' It is much easier to export/import rules that way and reduces the number of rules.
