I just started with Eagle and I am amazed how powerful this tool is.I would like to create custom pcb for my already existant parts like Arduino Nano, sensor boards and such.
Process would be consisted of adding custom stuff that I have in library and then just put on my new PBC board as components with pins and solder them to my newly created PCB.
I tried to learn from youtube videos how to use Eagle but one thing that I cannot find is explanation how to add pins holes for components like Arduino Nano or gsm sim800 module.
Those components already have pins on them and I just want to create fooprint that would place whole in propper way so I can solder components in that exact place.
Any help or hints would be much appreciated.
Thanks for helping out in advance.
I've put my first part in this link http://privatepaste.com/download/b685973b40
Goal was to make footprint for module in the picture.
Longer size is 21.80 mm and shorter size is 17.70 mm.
There are 5 pins that are to be used as connection on the board being developed.
I've put space between pins 2.54 mm (I've found those sizes on the net for breakaway headers).
Could someone please look at this part and tell me what I've done good/wrong and what should I change to make it as it should be.
If I create new schematic and use this component, then create board and put it on it, what I need to add to make it possible to solder this
module on my new board?
Should putting it to my new board automatically use holes in this part and propagate them to my board?
PS: If anyone could make youtube on this matter it would be great!
