Learn how to automatically push PCB footprints to our PCB documents from our existing schematic design.
- [Instructor] One of the most critical aspects…to set up correctly right at the start…of our board design here is to make sure…that you've correctly set up your grids…and your units and even your origin…as you may need for a specific project.…So, if I just go to my home tab here,…and over on the right hand side…I'm seeing grids and units here.…So first thing you might wanna take a look at,…we can fairly easily switch…between metric and imperial here.…
Again, maybe this is something you set up already…in a project template or a template of some sort,…so it's all set up for you, but you can customize it…in the middle of a project, as well.…So I can switch from metric to imperial pretty easily here.…I can set a specific origin, and I can change my snap grid,…and I can make some custom grids, as well.…So let's take a look right now.…As an example, if I wanted to change snap grid,…a number of default settings here,…so if it's metric maybe I'll put it…in millimeters, or in mills, whatever it might be.…
So I do five mill here, as an example,…
