In this video, learn how to automatically push PCB footprints to your PCB documents from the existing schematic design.
- [Instructor] If we have already…finished off our schematic design,…as we have in this case,…it's a very simple process to then just push over…all of those electrical components…into our PCB layout design.…So, for example, I have my schematic…that we've already created here,…with all of the electrical components placed.…And now I really just want to push those…over to the PCB layout,…eventually then we'll do the placements…and the routing and so on.…
So we have two options here,…we can do this from the schematic side of things…or the PCB layout side of things…and it's a very similar idea.…Just navigate over to the design dropdown…and if I choose update PCB here,…that will push all of the electrical components…over to my PCB layout.…Alternatively, from the PCB layout file, very similar idea,…just navigate, again, to that design dropdown…and choose import changes, which will, again,…push all those components over to my PCB layout.…
So let's try this from the PCB layout side,…I'll say import changes.…And what it's asking me here is just what I'd like to add…
