This tutorial video features the AutoTRAX DEX PCB Designer and shows you how to create parametric parts. The parametric part is a part that is automatically created from a number of parameters these parameters can be the size and shape of the pads, the pitch between the pads, the number pads, the size of the parts body, the colour of the body of the part, a texture that can be optionally applied to the body of the part, and so the list goes on. Using parametric parts allows you to create an infinite variety of parts based on a generic template. Examples of generic templates are SOIC devices, axial and radial devices. Small outline transistors, LEDs, sockets and many other different types. You will see many of them created in this video.
