This sheetshot shows how footprintbuilder was used to create a footprint for an Analog Devices component, and the results loaded into pcb and kicad.
To use footprintbuilder to create a footprint:
footprintbuilder - An interactive footprint design tool for EDA tools. Copyright (C) 2008 Robert Fitzsimons Introduction footprintbuilder is a footprint or land pattern design tool for EDA (Electronic Design Automation) tools. The user is able to easily design a footprint interactively and then export a file suitable importation into their chosen EDA tool. At the moment footprintbuilder is able to produce export files which are suitable for use in pcb (http://pcb.sourceforge.net/) and kicad (http://kicad.sourceforge.net/). With a longer term goal of supporting any EDA tool which has a documented file formats. footprintbuilder can currently be used in the design of a number of different dual and quad surface mount, and single, dual, multi row through hole footprints. Any bug reports or comments can be sent to Robert Fitzsimons <email@example.com>. Build / Execution footprintbuilder is written in Java and requires a 1.6 or higher version of the JDK, the build environment requires Apache Ant (1.7). From the top level directory type 'ant build-jar'. The resulting build/footprintbuilder.jar file can then be executed by typing 'java -jar footprintbuilder.jar'.
