What is currently working:

  • Create library items: symbols, footprints, 3D models, components
  • Create libraries and deploy them
  • Use libraries to add parts and library items from libraries
  • Create a schematic with multiple sheets
  • Define net classes in schematic
  • Create a board and update the board from the schematic
  • Update board outline
  • Define layers, layer groups, drill pairs and board rules
  • Define output setup for Gerber files and NC Drill files
  • Automatically repour polygons, check connections and compile rules
  • Compile and build a project; a compile is checking for errors all items in the project; a build will create outputs for the project
