Could Eeschema be programmed so that a schematic diagram can be implemented at the Set level IAW ASME Y14.44, Figure 3?
Explanation and purpose of being able to do so:
There have been situations presented on this forum where people have wanted either multiple individual PCBs or be able to have multiple PCBs on the same panel. The panel layout would be provisioned with V-grooves or mouse bites and routed slots in order to break the panel apart into individual boards.
The scheme uses what is called “mechanical-boundary” lines to segregate the different assemblies. Mechanical-boundary lines are long-short-short-long-short-short-long etc. lines, which in mechanical drawing parlance is a phantom line. The assemblies have reference designator prefixes applied as appropriate so that only basic reference designators are within an enclosing mechanical-boundary line, and only the basic reference designator would appear on a PCB. The criteria for these lines would be like the criteria for edge.cuts or courtyard outlines in that they would need to be continuous/no breaks. A PL/BOM printout would have the reference designators in alpha numeric order including the reference designator prefix(es).
I believe you would find that KiCad would be a cut above all the “professional” (read that as costly) programs such as Mentor Graphics offerings, Mentor Graphics PADS, Altium, and others.
Discussion and thought?
