Let's say you have a panel mount switch. When you create the footprint for this switch, you aren't creating it for the switch itself, rather, you are making a footprint with holes for the wires that will be run to the switch on the panel.
So what do you call a footprint that isn't for the component itself, but for wires that will run to the component? It's driving me nuts not having a way to refer to this.
I've been calling them "interfaces" but it's a stupid name and just a filler until I learn the correct word. What are these types of footprints called?
