Without access to the Altium vault library, I've been getting a bit frustrated managing libraries for passive components.
Currently, for various values of resistors/capacitors, I have to make a symbol and a footprint, link them together, go to supplier search, find a part number matching the component value, link all the parameters, and repeat for hundreds of different resistor/capacitor values.
I've recently come across the "Celestial Altium Library", which to me sounds like the perfect solution, with an up-to-date library of components, including passives of all sizes and values, with supplier links included. I would never have to bother creating my own unified component for each value of resistor/capacitor again, saving lots of time.
Trouble is, this library is designed for use in Altium Designer, as it uses a DBLib file. I know that SOLIDWORKS PCB has the ability to create DBLinks, but is there a way I can use this library?
In the installation tutorial on Altium, the DBLib file can be installed via the installed libraries window. But when I try, SOLIDWORKS PCB complains it can't recognize the file?
Is this yet another key feature of Altium that has been killed off in SOLIDWORKS PCB?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
