I have a problem with KiCad's python API (5.1), I cannot find a way to add a component onto the PCB. I found some examples but they no longer work with the version of KiCad I am using. The next step is going through the C++ code to understand how a component is placed on the board, but before that, I thought was worth asking for help here ..read more

Prevent application from warping/moving the mouse/cursor
Stack Overflow » KiCad
by Heneer

My issue is KiCad related however it applies to other programs as well. In KiCad under the schematics editor if you right click, move the mouse and then left-click the cursor will be placed back where you first right-clicked. According to some answers (see launchpad below) this is not a bug it's a feature, so the developers are reluctant to make it an optional feature. There is a similar feature concerning warping the mouse when zooming in, which is optional. My question is therefore if it is possible to block certain programs from moving the mouse cursor? i.e. $ kicad --mousewarp=0 I have ..read more

I want it to fit As of now, I have added some white spaces in order to bring the error in the middle if its short or starting from left leaving some spaces in order to occupy the space if the messag ..read more

I'm new to KiCad, so I'm struggling to understand what I'm supposed to use to get such a symmetrical blue construction with dots. Is this a bus?? How do I make it symmetrical I tried adding a bus to get the same result but the problem is that I dunno the actual metrics.. And even if I did I'm still at odds with how I'm supposed to get that symmetry. Also I tried maybe copying those squares but.. The bus denies connecting to other components ..read more

Create a footprint for mounting through the board (cut) in Kicad
Stack Overflow » KiCad

I wish to make a footprint for the following component: AG EMCO HV power supply Now, this component can be mounted through the board and while it isn't a very tall component, I wish to explore this option. I guess a side question is: how much do PCB manufacturers enjoy this feature? Would anyone know how to make a footprint which specifies a shape to be cut out of the board through all layers? I am not very experienced with Kicad and PCB design in general so this might be obvious. I appreciate any info that might lead me forward here ..read more
