Re: Oscad an EDA tool
Hello Dick, Martijn, Edwin
We have not modified/bug-fixed/enhanced the KiCad source code. We have only
used the binary version (installable through Ubuntu package manager for
Ubuntu and the .exe file for Windows available on the KiCad webpg). We are
using KiCad as the schematic editor and layout editor tool in Oscad. We
mention that in our documents as well. In fact, in our tutorial series, we
have made 4 tutorials on KiCad. We refer to them in our Oscad tutorial for
the users to know more about schematic creation and PCB design. We have 3
tutorials on Oscad. All these tutorials are available on our webpage
We only call eeschema, pcbnew and cvpcb using a script and launch them.
All our scripts are available on the webpage. Requesting you to kindly
check the same.
Kindly let us know of any issues/concerns/feedback.
Thanks and regards
