Can this kind of footprint draw with Kicad


#1

Is it possible to draw this in KiCAD it’self. How to handle the angles ? any guides to create circular round foot prints?


#2

Here’s a quick example, warts and all (a couple mistakes that I undo in the video). The Pad Array function is Ctrl-T (Cmd-T on Mac). I don’t number the pads correctly but you can right-click on a pad, choose renumber and then click from one to the next to get the ordering you want. Or do the array with a negative angle in the first place.

Thanks, mate, it works. I am new to this how do you know the 130 degree makes the perfect rotation to fit like a square for the middle one?

That was just to get A in the bottom right quadrant. 135 = 45 + 90
