Planned enhancements to AutoTRAX for the next 12 months

  • Part Creators
    Similar to the current add/edit resistor dialog/command the following device types will be supported:
    • MELF resistors
    • Inductors
    • Transformers
    • Diodes
    • Transistors
  • Parametric Models
    Parametric device models that automatically create footprints, 3D parts and the associated schematic symbols will be added for the following device types:
    • Disc Capacitor
    • SIP resistors
    • Sockets
    • Transformers
  • Parts Library
    • More parts and expanded community parts.
    • Web based parts librarian.
  • HELP System
    • More videos.
    • Designing with AutoTRAX book.
    • 2D Graphics
      Faster graphics using DirectX
    • Active3D Integration
      The 3D viewer/modeler will be improved to:
      • Import from Active3D into AutoTRAX.
      • More model creation techniques including surface of revolution, extrusions and machine tool operations like drills.
      • A 32 bit version will be added.
      • Reflective surfaces.
      • Real-time shadows.
    • 3D Import
      • STEP import.
    • 3D Visualization Inside AutoTRAX
      • Background customization – add your own images and set background colors.
      • Custom lighting.
    • PCB Routing
      • Improved internal router. Shaped based at no additional cost.
      • Follow me routing with manual routing linked to the internal router; a bit like the schematic wire router.
    • Reliability
      Kill all those bugs and usability issues and make AutoTRAX rock solid:
      • Improved Mantis Bug Tracking.
      • Feature Tracking.
      • Usability Tracking.
