New Layer by Layer: EagleCAD and Fusion 360 with Circuit Playground Express

This week I designed a simple enclosure for the Circuit Playground Express and wanted to share how I modeled the board in Fusion 360. I used EagleCAD to reference the position and dimensions of each component and drew them in Fusion 360. There’s also an export DXF option in Eagle that lets you export board outlines and footprints. I thought I’d do draw the board the “hard way” so I can get a quick refresher on Eagle’s interface and how their document origins work. If anyone wants to reuse the circuit playground 3D model, you can download it in a variety of formats (SAT, STEP, STL, OBJ).
