Libraries contain the 3D component models required to generate the 3D View. These component models are contained .pkg library files.
Pads and vias, although essentially the same consisting of a hole surrounded by a copper land, understanding each will allow you to use each to its best advantage.
The Library Manager is a versatile tool allowing you the flexibility to create the library structure that suits your requirements. This article discusses key points to understand and how to use regarding DSPCB updates.

Multiple schematic sheets within a project use local components not shared between sheets. This video illustrates the steps to make a multigate component global.
DSPCB Pro provides an extra level of protection for your designs which also provides a way to revert to an earlier design stage if you are not satisfied with the current version.
Generate a panel of your PCB design using the Pro Wizard, here we show the key stages leading to producing the Gerber plots for a panel.
When designing a schematic, the ability to include part of the design such as the power supply as a block leads to clarity of the design function. DSPCB Pro provides just that advantage, read on to discover more.
PCB component assembly is processed by a "Pick and Place" automated system, the following describes how produce the required pick and place file and how to edit to provide the data for the manufacturer.
