Hi, long time KiCad user here. I’m on Linux Mint (using Ubuntu release) and just upgraded from 5.1.2 to 5.1.7.
Basically, I’m trying to export all of my files to JLCPCB without errors or drama! There are a whole bunch of options for BOM export in both Eschema and PCB new. I can’t get a single option to generate me a simple CSV file I can work with that doesn’t contain a bunch of random Chinese characters. JLC outright rejects every file I’ve generated.
PNP is even worse. I’ve found a work around that will allow me to get positioning correct if I don’t panelize and manually correct rotation, but that’s about it.
I’m not the smartest guy on here and I’m really not interested in downloading a bunch of random scripts from Git. Is there anything obvious I’m missing here or are these issues going to be addressed in future releases?
