"Manual PnP" tool now supports KiCad Output


#1

Greets!

Quick word to let everyone who assembles they’re own prototypes know that I’ve just released an enhancement to “MeatbagPnP” so that it’ll work with KiCad output.

MeatbagPnP is a little python app (created by Colin O’Flynn) that takes the PnP .pos file and an image of your board to indicate exactly where a part–or (now) a group of components of the same value–should be placed.

You can see it in action with KiCad:

Hope it’s useful to others as well.

Thanks.
