Helper plugin for KiCad
« on: Thu, 30 April 2020, 07:38:41 »
Hi,

those of you who did PCB design probably know that manual placement of elements is tedious task. For me it was unbearable so I decided to automate this with KiCad API.
My work can be found at https://github.com/adamws/kicad-kbplacer
It is not yet polished but should be usable at this stage. So far I did 4 projects with it and it was a breeze.

I would like to hear your feedback and suggestions about features you would like to see.

I did wonder if such a tool existed. I've finished my layout for now but will try to remember this next time.
