Import Netlist failed to include fiducials

SHR007 , 05-20-2019, 11:08 PM
ORCAD software failed to import fiducials into workspace. Rest all components were available in the "Placement" dialog box.
Any clue why this would happen? .

What is in the log file (when you are importing, there is a log file)? Any warning or errors?

Hi Robert

I have attached the project file in the reply. This might help you have a better look.

When running ERCin Orcad, this is probably the problem "Ignoring this component in netlist"
#1 WARNING(ORCAP-36050): No pins are present in FID1. Ignoring this component in netlist.

You can try to use our search (that is what I did) e.g. look for "ignoring netlist":

And I believe, this may be the solution, in fiducial, create property named CLASS with value MECHANICAL

Let me know if that helped.

Thank you Robert

After updating the property of the part. I generated the netlist again and also updated the existing brd file.
Eventually, I found the component in "Place -> Mechanical Symbols".
