How to snap a footprint to reference geometry?
Hi. I’m new here and new to KiCAD.
I’ve tried searching the history but all related posts I’ve found are quite old. Perhaps KiCAD 6.0 has a new way of doing this.
I have to precisely position a bunch of components (LEDs) on my board to line up with corresponding features on my case. They’re at irregular locations, so a rectangular grid or array won’t help.
I’ve designed the case in CAD (Fusion 360), created a reference sketch keyed to the case geometry, exported to DXF, and imported to a user layer in the PCB editor. So far so good.
I did so because I expected to find some kind of ‘gravity snap to nearest vertex’ command in the PCB editor. Is it hiding somewhere?
At the moment, I’m reduced to using a super-high-resolution grid and eyeballing it. There’s gotta be a better way.
