I tried Eagle several years ago but it wasn't very compatible with the way my brain works.

Lately I'm very happy with KiCad. Followed the getting started manual 3 years ago and within a single afternoon I knew enough to draw my first pcb, and it has been improving steadily in the last few years.

Give it a try and you probably won't want Eagle any more.

(I tried kicad; it didn't work on my mac (not any of several different versions!)  And it has a weird model that divorces PCBs from schematics in a way that seems wrong (after having used EAGLE for a while.)

I also REALLY LIKE the ULP extension language of EAGLE (which is C-like.)  I've done some neat things with it.

I had not heard of KiCAD, just installed it on the Mac and it runs fine. I do not have time to play at the moment but will definitely give it a try.

Convert Eagle files to Kicad? https://github.com/DanChianucci/... :)

I have one .ulp that draws "Whimshurst" disks, given ID, OD, and number of segments (alas, I haven't built one yet), another that draws a "convex shell" around a set of reference points, for implementing odd board shapes, one that draws a OSHW logo of arbitrary size, one that plots a "protoboard-like" PCB area of arbitrary size.  Plus the usual set of GUI enhancers that turn my favorite layers on or off, double or halve the grid size, redraw/copy the silkscreen in different design rules...

Pulsonix has a ULP that converts Eagle files to Pulsonix format. It works very well: PCB and Schematic designs, Part, Footprint and Schematic Symbol libraries can be transferred to Pulsonix.

Eagle seems to be the standard for open source schematics from adafruit and sparkfun. I keep a version on the machine for viewing schematics, but our shop uses Altium DXP.

Yeah, it is really quite embarrassing that prominent open source companies do not use open source tools (also Arduino), hopefully that will change. The Eagle to Kicad converter works quite well, but of course you still need Eagle installed to run it.

Interesting - seems to reflect something of a flux in the PCB CAD marketplace.

I saw OrCAD were offering Schematic flows for Support prices (IIRC ~$390 ?) for a perpetual license.

Looks like those companies trying customer capture via annual subscription licenses are not doing so well ?

I noticed quite a lot of push-back on forums around that closed/capture aspect of Mentor's Designer licensing.

 

KiCad also continues to improve, their new Shove Router demos well. Also looks to run on all Operating systems ?

About to try the 2016 build...
