In this video, learn how to place footprints on your PCB board and how to switch which layer the component is placed on.
- [Narrator] So, now that we have pushed our…components over to our PCB layout,…most likely, we'd like to place them on our actual board.…So, this is a nice simple process.…Again, I do have a bunch of placement commands here,…that I can see, so Move, Drag, and so on.…So I can use any of those as I may like,…Move and Drag are both very useful commands,…or, I can just really click and drag.…So, let's say, my main board here U1,…I can just click and drag my board…and bring it over to my actual board shape.…
Now, notice here, it's kind of jumping around…into some strange angles, and…that's because it's placing on my polar grid.…So, for some, maybe, more complex board designs…I may need to jump back and forth between grids.…So, again, I'll navigate to my panels, my property panel,…and just take a look at my grids here.…So, let's say I want to go back to…a Cartesian grid or just my default grids.…
So I'm just going to turn off my polar grid here for a second,…so now I'm back to a more rectangular grid…and I can again click and drag my U1…
