In this video, learn how to build a simple PCB footprint from scratch in a custom PCB library using the component wizard.
- [Instructor] So now that we've finished off the…schematic side of our capacitor component,…most likely I'd like to jump over and draw out…my PCB side on my PCB Footprint.…So to do that, I'll just want to jump over…to the PCB library here and just double-click,…and it's really the exact same idea…so I can completely manually create new components,…edit existing component properties,…just like I did in the schematic side…and then manually draw out whatever I'd like…for my footprints, so I have rectangles, lines, so on,…as well as any paths I may need to place as well…for my footprints here.…
So that would be the more manual method…and you can really create whatever footprint…you may need there, but another option I have…is to use the Footprint Wizard,…so if I just navigate over to my footprints here.…I just right click anywhere within my footprints.…I do have the ability to create a new blank footprint,…and that would be the more manual method,…or just below it, I have this Footprint Wizard.…So if I click on the Footprint Wizard there,…
