I keep having to design my own footprints for Cadence Allegro / PCB Editor even for standard parts. There are lots of libraries for schematic capture symbols but I am having trouble finding footprints.

Can somebody point me towards a library of PCB footprints?

Is this for OrCAD? You have that tag but say Allegro. Or is Allegro part of OrCAD? –  Brian Carlton Aug 2 '12 at 18:44
@BrianCarlton This is for Allegro. I used the Orcad tag because there is none for Allegro and most Orcad users will also be using Allegro. –  ARF Aug 2 '12 at 18:53
@Arik Raffael Funke, I created allegro tag and added it here. –  Brian Carlton Aug 2 '12 at 19:27
@NickAlexeev Thanks for the link. Unfortunately I did not find much there. The group has a total of merely 31 messages since 2008. –  ARF Aug 2 '12 at 19:57
