Kicad is published under various open source copyrights. Does this apply to breaking up the zipped installation folder and distributing only pcbnew and gerberview executable files along with my completed .kicad_pcb file? This would shrink a zip package down to only 29MB.
I have been using Kicad since version 3 and the newer versions are more than I need for my simple two or three component and headers projects. I intend to post a video showing my procedure to create one .kicad_pcb file containing two grounded single pin through hole headers and then copy to a new file under a new project name. Footprints can be imported or created and traces added after disabling design rule checking. Please don’t blacklist me.
Kicad is made up of three parts. Schematic layout, matching existing footprints to the schematic, and building the pcb. My intention is to minimize the first two and get newbies comfortable with pcb design of early projects before proceeding with larger projects that will definitely benefit from looking at the project from the viewpoints of schematic design and then board layout.
