KiCadHowTo

Tutorials and help with using KiCad, the free PCB
design suite, for Windows, Linux and Mac

Welcome!

"Getting to know you": An introductory tutorial, covering the basics with a very, very simple circuit. This tutorial also establishes my working conventions, and takes you through the details of the precise "KiCad" meaning of some essential terms.

Make your own: KiCad comes with many useful schematic symbols and board footprints... and a well designed system for adding any custom element you may wish to add. Here's how.

KiCad "Encyclopedia": Short pages defining terms.

(Those links take you into my wiki. Don't be alarmed when you find yourself in "KiCadHowTo.wikidot.com"... that is by my design, not by some nefarious Bad Person's site hacking!)

A little bonus... Visitors to this page since November 21, 2011



Sorry, folks... couldn't resist! I hope you find this widget as cool as I do. Play with it... See what happens when you drag on it with your mouse. You can easily add one to your site, free. Just visit www.revolvermaps.com. You have many options on the widget design page, which is a paragon of user-friendliness. You can track individual pages or page sets. A RevolverMap also gives you access to lists of what countries you were visited from. More at my page for web page authors. On modest devices... Kindles and iPads, for instance... you won't see the revolving globe that others see, but you still see something. (Don't you?)
