Hi, has KiCad 8.0 removed the option to attach silkscreen to footprints in the PCB editor? I used to add pin labels to terminals and there is no longer any option to do it. Has it been removed or moved somewhere else? https://preview.redd.it/c9hkzrpzl6mc1.png?width=1745&format=png&auto=webp&s=eb3f1bd392236cef46a2c2192884e7dc8e77996e submitted by /u/maciekish [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

Kicad8 won't show me a simple 0603 resistor footprint

I just updated to Kicad8. I added a resistor to my schematic, assigned a 0603 resistor footprint, updated PCB from schematic. Now it shows these little blue "connect here" lines, but the footprint itself is... gone? hidden? Everything else is there. https://preview.redd.it/fiidgxljl5mc1.png?width=904&format=png&auto=webp&s=c9640cad0d5f2e37c027eef8c08b201bb45d32d9 When I press d, it also shows where the footprint should be. https://preview.redd.it/qiolhkrml5mc1.png?width=806&format=png&auto=webp&s=5d4dcbdbad090de79f2549798e7c207a3541f0b8 ​ Any Idea what i can do?

"Tooling Holes" for JLCPCB Assembly

Hello, I'm designing a 2 layers PCB that I will be producing and assembling at JLCPCB. Per JLCPCB assembly requiements, you need to add Tooling Holes, or they can add them wherever they want on the board. I'm trying to create a footprint by following JLCPCB's tooling holes specifications which are the following: Tooling holes should be 1.152mm(45.4mil) round non-plated holes with 0.148mm solder mask expansion When adding the tooling hole on the copper area, the clearance between tooling hole and and copper should be at least 0.248mm Could somebody confirm me that the settings I used to ..read more

I'm having an issue with generating gerbers in Kicad 7. DRC comes back clean, and these gigantic circles on F.CU and B.CU aren't viable in pcbnew, but do some up when I check the plot output. Any one seen this before? submitted by /u/_Hyperoid_ [visit reddit] [comments ..read more
