Footprint pad array 4 sides

Is it possible to create a pad array with 4 sides


When I select either SMD or PTH pad array tools, it starts with left and right selected, top and bottom are grayed out. If I deselect left and right, I can select top or bottom, but then left and right are greyed out. Am I missing something?

Hi @duncanBC5DV,


I hope you're doing well. It sounds like you want to use all 4 sides. Currently the array commands don't support 4 sided footprints.


I'll make a ticket for this so that this can be improved. For now if you need a 4 sided footprint you can run the current array functions twice. You are not missing anything.


Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

Thanks for the prompt reply @jorge_garcia2 


I must say I'm still a little bit concerned as to how this feature was released without supporting 4 sides, it brings the validation testing into question, perhaps you can pass that on to your colleagues.

Any movement on this issue @jorge_garcia2 ? It's been 8 months. I tried to run the 2-sided pin array twice and got some very strange results:
