Naming Convention for Mechanical 3D Models and Footprints

Components which do not have electrical functionality only mechanical function belonging to Mechanical category.

All Mechanical 3D Models are divided in component categories by mechanical types (e.g. Heat sinks, Knobs…).

Naming Convention for Mechanical 3D models and land patterns (footprints) consists of abbreviation for mechanical component type

(e.g. HSINK, KNOB…) + _ (underscore) + Manufacturer + _ (underscore) + Manufacturer’s Part Number (Manufacturer’s Code).

Mechanical category list is shown below.
