IPC-7X51 Naming Convention for Connectors and Mechanical Components
Connectors, which 3D models, footprints or package outline, do not belonging to IPC7251 Through-hole standard package outline categories HDRV and HDRRA, are classified in connector miscellaneous packages.
All Connector’s 3D models are divided in component categories by Manufacturers (e.g. 3M, DEGSON, HARWIN…).
IPC-7×51 Naming Convention for Connectors 3D models and land patterns (footprints) consist of:
abbreviation for Manufacturer’s Name (e.g. 3M, DEGSON, HARWIN…) + _ (underscore) + Manufacturer’s Part Number (Manufacturer’s Code).
Connector category list is shown below.

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 and footprints are divided in component categories by mechanical types (e.g. Heat sinks, Knobs, Spacers…).
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.
