Microwave stripline patterns as a footprint library?

Dear all, I am trying to use some microwave stripline patterns in my PCB design and I found it to be quite painful.
So I am wondering if it is possible to draw metallic polygons (e.g. microstrip couplers, interdigitated filters, etc.) in the footprint library, to be accessible several times in my design.
I would like to know also if there is some easy-to-use powerful microwave toolkit for PCBNEW.

It’s possible but not from within the footprint editor, you would have to edit the text file directly. Or draw the pattern in another tool and use KiCAD’s Bitmap2Component tool.

Not that I’m aware of, but you could make one. :slight_smile:
