As I stared to play with KiCAD and all my libraries are made with Orcad, I created a small tool to convert Orcad libraries to KiCAD.
However, Orcad *.olb file format is not public so you first need to convert *.olb files to XML:
You can find orlib2ki and instructions here:
I added a tcl script to convert your libraries directly from orcad:
To get this feature, put updateXML.tcl in your capAutoLoad directory (Cadence\SPB_17.2\tools\capture\tclscripts\capAutoLoad), edit your paths in updateXML.tcl:
set olbLibPath "C:/MyLibDir"
set orlib2ki "C:/orlib2ki.exe"
and restart Orcad.
