Re: ERC / DRC user survey


My biggest gripe is the inability to import a DRC configuration from a PCB fab company. 

Many fabs provide Eagle DRC files customized to their various offerings. With KiCad I either have to customize each project or create template files before I start a project. If I want to run a DRC using another fab's specs I have to change the board manually and then potentially change it back. 

I should be able to load a DRC spec by clicking a "Load" button and giving a file name. I should be able to save a customized DRC spec just as easily.

Subject: [Kicad-developers] ERC / DRC user survey 

Hi all, 
The development team would like feedback from users on the ERC and DRC functionality of KiCad. We'd like to know what KiCad gets right, and what features are missing that you need. 

The data from this anonymous survey will help us prioritize development efforts related to ERC and DRC. While we make no promises about whether or when any particular feature will be implemented, we will make our best effort to include user feedback in our specifications for the ERC and DRC upgrades that are planned for KiCad 6.0 

Here's the survey link:
