D3T -Dynamic Drill Drawing Table Program

Update Note 04/2009: An updated version of D3T with new features is in process and should be released soon. If you have suggestions for improvements please submit them to: support@mindlinktech.com -Thanks.


The D3T program is a PADS PowerPCB VB script which generates a drill drawing table composed of 2d-lines and text. It is dynamic, in that it can be moved, accuractly positioned and edited in the design and is not tied to blind CAM processing.


  • Drill drawing symbol list in CAM is automatically sorted.
  • Unused drills automatically removed.
  • Table data and order exactly matches the NC Drill report.
  • Support for slotted holes (PPCB ver4 only).
  • Generated table is fully scalable -controlled by text size.
  • Separate specification for text and line width.
  • Table is created as a combined drawing making it easy to move and  edit.
  • Column for NC Drill tool list.
  • Column for drill tolerances (fully editable).
  • Drill size and tolerance title headings are editable.
  • Can appear on any layer.
  • Support for separate plated/non-plated and blind and buried drill tables.
  • Operates in mils, metric or inch units.
  • Drill symbols are added sequentially without gaps.
