Inspired by the TicTocTrac class/project, YouTuber Vikas V came up with this nift trick for populating an array of components in Eagle, and then automating their layout into a circular – or even oval – shape. Pretty cool! The video takes a bit to build up to the ‘a-ha’ moment but it’s totally worth it if you’re looking for this solution for your own build. Video below.
