PCB layout

Fritzing is an open source hardware software tool allowing users to document their prototypes, layout and have pcbs manufactured.[1]

Don't use Fritzing

Fritzing has no equal for easily creating neat graphical images of breadboard circuits. However:[2][3][4]

  • New parts cannot be created from scratch within Fritzing, Inkscape or another vector design program has to be used.
  • Circuits are designed via a 0.1" pin pitch breadboard representation, and the schematic is created from that.
  • The schematic is ugly.
  • There are no nets or buses in the schematic view. Parts are connected by wires between individual pins. Connections cannot be named.
  • It is unlike every other schematic capture application.
