    anyone know where can I found the very common connectors in Diptrace? I think it is a very common component and it should be in the library but I can't find it.

    By the time you asked this question you could have already made it yourself.
    There are only "thousands" of "green screw connectors" out there.

    Get the datasheet of the specific connector you want and add/create that part to your library. It should take you no more than 30 seconds to create a "component" and "pattern" for it.

    Or Sauro, or PTR or WECO or Oupiin or any of the other hundred or so companies that make those parts.

    We used to use Phoenix Contact until we found "Sauro" which has MUCH better pricing and slightly better specifications (current rating,etc..)

    Phoenix Contact is great.. If you want to pay more for everything. :)

    I made my own based on OST connectors. Here is library file; you can modify it for your purposes.

    Change the file name back to end with .eli and you should be able to open it in DipTrace.
