To Eagle or not to Eagle
« on: November 16, 2021, 03:29:19 AM »
Hi gang

What's the go-to PCB designer these days? I've very limited experience with Eagle but have a funny feeling things may have moved on since the last time I used it.

All recommendations gratefully received!

Thanks

I've been having pretty good luck using KiCad.....
Building with my daughter and occasionally selling as "Daddy Daughter Pedal Works"
Not for any real profit, just trying to have a self-funding hobby.

I like Sprint.  To me, it's the easiest to use.  You can also produce Gerber files for manufacturing.

Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.
