Quote from: winfried on January 05, 2016, 10:43:48 pmThank you for the eagle to kicad conversion tools, they are really great help.I converted roughly MOD-ESP8266-DEV, ESP8266-EVB-BAT, USB-uLipo and want to merge them somehow.The problem: Every of them has an own device-lib converted and the OLIMEX custom devices for schematics/PCB like resistors are not the same as the R of kicad and when I add the converted libs i got doubles of converted parts of Olimex custom eagle parts.My workflow as intended: 1) import the schematics from the converted in hierachal sheets 2) copy paste from them to my new project as needed. 3) remove obsolete sheets. ...Advices needed:- Should I add the olimex-parts to a new lib and avoid doubles (like resistors 602) ? - How can I make a device footprint out of a Module, here MOD-ESP8266-DEV to solder on my board. (I think the way it was done with pads with ESP8266-EVB-BAT is only practical for using sockets)- Is there a place to share these libs, maybe an Olimex Part library for KICAD with others (preferable supervised by OLIMEX) or should we start something like this ?mfg winfriedPS: should we start a new thread to do this ?
