How-To Tip for Automating Components in Circular Shapes in Eagle @CadSoftTech
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.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
