Layer by Layer – Cherry MX Gamepad in Eagle CAD

In this tutorial, we’ll learn how to lay out components in Eagle CAD to make a custom PCB. This project will be a gamepad with Cherry MX switches and an Adafruit Feather 32u4 Bluefruit LE. It’s a very basic design that hopefully provides a good introduction to eagle. We’ll quickly learn how to navigate through the interface and use basic tools like add, move, route and wire. \
