Learn how to build a simple PCB footprint from scratch in a custom PCB library using the component wizard.
- [Instructor] Creating the PCB footprint…for your library components works in a very similar manner.…So for one I want to make sure I'm in my PCB library file…instead of the schematic library file.…Gonna just jump into the PCB library file here.…And again remember, both of these are within…my integrated library.…And same idea, I have a list of however many…PCB components I may want to create,…I can create more, edit existing, delete,…whatever it might be.…
And I have a few options here.…For one, again, just as before I can make edits…and changes to these and I can draw out…my footprint here using the home tab,…all the drawing commands I have available to me here.…So you can place pads and lines and connection points…and everything else there.…But one option that's great as well,…I can just right-click in my components here…and I can also use the component wizard.…So that might be a great way or a faster way…to do things once you get familiar…with the component wizard here, it's just gonna help you…through the entire process.…
