Learn how to place our first electrical components onto the schematic drawings.
- [Instructor] Now that we've started our project…and installed the libraries we may need,…let's take a look at actually inserting…some components into our schematic.…So, I'm going to navigate over to the right-hand side…to my libraries here, let me make sure…I'm in the right libraries.…That's the lilypad simple v2 library here.…And here I'll see all the components that I'll be using…to create my schematic.…Now, I can search here, I have a search command,…so if you have a very large library,…you can search specific component names, or footprints,…or whatever it may be, but then once we've found…the components we're looking for, it's very simple…to insert it into the schematic.…
I can just click and drag, and throw in my component here,…and I have a few other options as well.…Aside from the click and drag, I could do a double-click,…or a right-click and place,…and any three of those will work.…It's up to your own preferences there. Place here.…What's also useful to know here…is once placed, then you just click again on my schematic…
