I have a legacy design in Altuim 6 and would like to transfer it to KiCAD 6, but am having no luck.
KiCAD 6 eeschema will not even look at the schdoc files. I managed to have a little bit of luck with the ‘altium2kicad’ tool, but got a very broken schematic. Repairable with decent effort.
KiCAD 6 pcbnew will likewise not look at the pcbdoc files. It does even less with ASCII 2.8 or Binary 3 or Binary 4 version PCB files.
Is it that the eeschema/pcbnew kiCAD importers expect a later version than my files, which were made back in the noughities with Altium 6?
At this stage I’m looking at importing the gerbers and undertaking a nasty and lengthy process of manual conversion (at least I get tracks, but no footprints)… a little better than redrawing the whole thing from scratch, but is that my only option?
