RV Software / Re: How do you place components in 45 degrees?

Or just export as un-rotated and apply rotation as a bias in RVPlace ( remember the figures are tenths of a degree, so 450 )

I'm sure someone on here can answer the Eagle half....

Mike has written some tools in VB that generate the placement files for the machine from your CAD softwares output (PCad)
Elsewhere on here I'm pretty sure someone else has done much the same thing with a ULP for eagle... EDIT- In fact its a sticky UP Top^^^
Both of these would automatically get you custom rotations...
And lastly if you are using RVGerber to create your placements it does indeed not immediately appear possible, until you locate the thread on here that mentions a 100% not intuitive keypress that suddenly makes that possible.. good luck!

RV Software / How do you place components in 45 degrees?
« Last post by dirk1980 on February 21, 2019, 01:14:40 AM »
Hi,
I have a board on which 3 parts are placed in 45 degrees.
And Eagle can't produce reasonable pads for such components.
Now I ask myself the question: How do you place components in 45 degrees?

I find no menu item where I can specify the angle of a component itself.

Probably wouldn't hurt to replace the 20+ year old electrolytics

Thanks for the info.

My unit is a twin toroidal so sounds like I do not need to worry at this stage about a new power supply. I may well measure the 12V line and see how it looks.

On my twin toroidal power supply, I had some problems with supply to the house dropping below the legal voltage
Once it dropped below 200V, which was unacceptable and caused all sorts of issues.
so I fitted one of these APC Line-R 1200VA Automatic Voltage Regulator - LE1200I
It solved that problem instantly
Since then western power faitted a voltage monitor and within a few weeks of seeing the readings, dug the road up and fed our place from the other end of the line and voltages are all within spec so I guess that bit of kit is redundant.

Hi, I did PM before and you said you did not receive it. I also sent you an email but was wondering if that hit your spam? Maybe you could send me an email at and see if that works?

Read this thread after troubles with my vacuum and thinking that maybe I could do with a power supply upgrade anyway.

Have many people replaced the power supply in their RVs?
