Route Multiple Components while making the Footprint

I've made a device with multiple components (resistors, transistor, zener diode, optocoupler, relay). I will need to connect only 5 pins while routing the PCB in an electronics design, the rest pins are connected the same way each time.

How can I connect/route those pins in the footprint?

I've attached a snapshot of the components in the footprint.

Thanks.

Hi @majedationE43S5,

 

I hope you're doing well. If I can make a suggestion, instead of doing this in the library you might be better served by using designblocks. Designblocks allow you to create reuseable blocks of circuitry that you can insert into designs whenever you need them. Going this route will require you to break this device you have made and actually insert the individual components into the schematic and route them. Only then can you make the designblock.

@jorge_garcia2 
While you're absolutely right that designblocks is the right thing for this, isn't is so that you'll still have to use EAGLE to actually create the designblock?
Or can it be done in Fusion now?

Hi @jesper8W75R ,

 

Try WRITE DBL in the Electronics command line and press enter. We still need a UI for this and we want to make a lot of improvements but for now you can generate the designblock from within Fusion 360 using the above command.
