[kicad-users] KiCad and Python - how to use scripts like TTConv?

2007-11-09 Thread pixostat
Hello everybody!

I'm new user on kicad-users. I use KiCad from last few months, now its
time to start using scripts wrotten in Python. I downloaded latest
TTConv package, but I don't now how to play with those nice scripts.
What should I do to start using Python scripts with KiCad? Somebody
can help me and explain how to do that?

I have little experience with Python and Scribus - but Scribus has got
special tools in menu to start and test scripts - my KiCad hasn't
those features...

My platform is: WinXP SP2 Proffesional PL
Installed KiCad 2007-07-09 Unicode
Installed Python 2.5.1
Installed PIL 1.1.6 for Python 2.5
Downloaded TTConv02-020807 Sorgenti

P.S.
Sorry for my English :(

 It sounds like we're doing something different here, Igor, in that the

 would be interested to see your design, if you could send it to me

At KiCad wiki you can find the information about MLF-32 footprint.

Thank you - that's useful.   I see you broke up the thermal pad with the
solder mask, which is as recommended.   Do you know how to do that with
kicad?   I tried creating a zone on the mask layer, but it didn't work.
  I've therefore gone for creating an array of dummy pins (ie 33
onwards), all connected to ground.

Regards,

Robert.

Translation to everyone from Erick

Hello,
I seek to know how to change the layout of the documents.
The information in the lower right corner of the documents are
incomplete and there
I have to put special logos. I want to know how
.
Thank you,
Sincerely
Erick


On my side I think we can neither modify the layout nor insert a
graphical image in SCH and PCB documents. Am I right?

Harold

Bonjour,
Je vais consulter les autres à vérifier cela. Parce que de mon point
de vue à ce stade, il ne peut ni modifier ni ajouter la mise en page
des images (comme les logos) en tant Eeschema et Pcbnew

Re: [kicad-users] Re: 32 Pin MLF Footprint

2007-11-09 Thread Pedro Martín
Hi,

I do not know this footprint, but when I need a zone in the midle of a 
footprint, I also create a row of square pins all of them with number 0 
(zero). So I have only one pin with number 0 in the Eeschema component.

If you create a single big pad or a zone in the module, the component wil be 
floating on the solder paste, like a surfing table on a wave, when soldering.

Pedro.
 Thank you - that's useful.   I see you broke up the thermal pad with the
 solder mask, which is as recommended.   Do you know how to do that with
 kicad?   I tried creating a zone on the mask layer, but it didn't work.
