I have some elements that I want to include in my schematic and BOM but that do not have a footprint. One example may be FPC cables or RF antenas or even a case for a PCB.
I was wondering if there is a generic component in KiCad libraries that can be used for this purpose or if should be added to the libraries in case it doesn’t exist.
As I did not find a simple solution for this, I’ve decided to ask the librarians for a solution in Github.
The librarians suggested to ask for opinions on this forum in order to include a greater public.
For the time being I understand that there is people that think of this as a hack that does not really do the job properly and there is also people that thinks that ECAD solutions do not provide a good solution to this type of management but they should.
What are your opinions on the topic? Do you think that including this components in the BOM is a good feature? Can you provide a better solution than a generic component without a footprint?
Thank you very much in advance
