Adding custom components to ExpressSch
« on: November 15, 2006, 10:59:17 pm »
Here's my component file.
Custom components

Download this zip file.
Unzip it into your ExpressPCB folder.
The next time you open Express Sch, click on the components manager button and then tick the custom components box to see all the new symbols.
 
If the SchComponents_Custom folder does not exist, it will be created when you unzip it.
If you already have a SchComponents_Custom folder, just add the files into your folder
 
Put all the component files in this folder.

Here's the long version
 
This is how to do it in Windows XP.  
You would have to use winzip or some other zip extraction program if you don't have XP.

Custom components
Click on the link above and the dialog box below will open.
Click Save.

The dialog box on the left opens first.
Hit the Browse button.
Browse down to the ExpressPCB folder using the image on the right as your guide.
The ExpressPCB folder should be highlighted just like in the picture.
Press the Next button.

The SchComponents_Custom folder is now extracted under the ExpressPCB folder.
If you did not have the folder, it is created there.
Uncheck the Show extracted files box
Click Finish.
  
If you already had the SchComponents_Custom folder, you will want to extract the zip folder and then move all the files inside into your SchComponents_Custom folder.
 
The next time you start the Express SCh program, there will be a bunch of new custom components.
