So A while Ago Altium (Yes The Altium Dave Jones talks about) Said that it’s going to work on a program called Circuit maker. And wanted to focus on The Makers, Hobbyists and DIYers.
So what exactly is Circuit Maker you may ask? Circuit Maker is a Free version of Altium’s High end PCB Design Software called Altium Designer (Now Circuit Studio) That allows you to easily Make Schematics and convert them in to a PCB.
This Sound’s fantastic isn’t it?
Well, yes and no. As many things there are a few Pro And Cons
– It’s Free – You Can’t import Altium Libraries – It has a community – There arent a lot of Working component Libraries. – It has some examples
Also Version 1(Beta) Is having some issues on Windows 10 (At least on my computer).
But I think I’m going to keep using Dip trace so yeah.
