Default Footprint Noval ECC83 Altium

Good afternoon all,
I am designing a board on Altium Designer with an ECC83 and before doing myself the footprint I was wondering if any of you has already done it before!
I had a look around but apparently even on designcontent.live.altium.com/ this library is not there.
Otherwise I will make it and then share.. of course!
Thank you!

Had an itch in the memory so went looking.
There was a Vaccuum Tube Power Amplifer Schematic in the Examples under spice simulation section in Protel99SE (The last Protel version before the first Altium Designer version) but clicking on the schematic symbol and looking in the "Footprint" box showed "none".
Checked in Altium Designer6 (current version is apparently Altim Designer14) and that same design example is there (7199 into a pair of 6L6GC) but again no footprint info just simulation stuff.

Have you placed a query on the Altium Community Forum?
Of-course you have to Register and Sign In and all that but just may save you some hastle.

AltiumLive

Cheers,
Ian

mh, the Altium Designer 14 development team decided ECC83 was too old style.. the example is not there!
Now I placed the query where you suggested, I will let you know and share the result if you are interested.
Cheers!

For all the interested people, there are some Tubes in "Miscelaneous devices" intlib in altium. This morning I checked them out, are well done, essential set though.
Next step is: does any of you have experienced UltraLibrarian or something? It should translate bxl files into readable altium files but apparently makes a mess between footprint and schematic, then I had to rewire the to libs myself - and gives time dependant error. Maybe tomorrow will go better, lets see.

I designed my own footprint in OrCAD when I needed one. It took about 45 seconds with the pad array generator. Just specify the number of pins and the diameter. Voila! Footprint...
