Hi Everyone, at
Ozarkcon this year is a really great chance to learn how to
KiCad for making professional PCB layouts and 3D printing
for your cabinets for radio gear!
KiCad works for SMD or THT components, ground planes, and
lots of other great features. KiCad is as easy to use for
schematic capture, PCB layout and it even gives a 3D rendering
of the assembled board. PCB are easy to order direct from
China. Download KiCad (see below) and bring along your pc;
we'll work on a project together.
KiCad now has a push and shove router which is capable of
routing differential pairs and interactively.
tuning trace lengths.
3D printing is a very cool new technology that kids are
learning in middle and high school to make small cabinets,
paddles for keyers, etc. Download and install FreeCad to
follow along. Working with 3D is not as difficult at you
Barry Buelow - WØIY has 2 time sections of learning this
great software for
us at Ozarkcon. Bring your laptops to follow along
with the presentations.
What computer OS do you use? Can I use my computer?
AND for you Chromebook owners, yes it is possible to run
Will KiCad get me away from dead-bug construction? Well,
it sure has
a good chance of me changing my ancient ways :-)
See you all at Branson.......it's gonna be fun!
