PCB Artist is a compact Windows utility built specifically for helping you create digital electronic circuits and schemas.
It sports a clean and straightforward layout that offers step-by-step approach for helping you set up a new project.
You can specify the measurement unit and board size, use board templates, create a four-layered board or other circuit types, and work with multiple layers.
Plus, you can set up the board parameters (e.g. material type and thickness), provide details about the board quantity and overall cost, as well as pick the saving directory and name.
PCB Artist lets you add files with the following file formats: PCB, SCH, PALIB, EIP, EIS, or FAB file format.
The application enables you to select from various preset components which can be added to the working environment with just a few clicks. Plus, you can preview each object in a dedicated pane.
What’s more, you can perform basic editing operations (cut, copy, paste, or delete), undo or redo your actions, select a color for the board, connections, and highlighted sections, zoom in or out, as well as insert various objects, such as rectangles, triangles, closed shapes, squares, and single lines.
The application allows you to add pads, connections and tracking lines, embed text messages, identify electrical spacing errors, measure the distance between two points or items, and add copper shapes.
Last but not least, you can import data from DXF, NET, or EDN file format, route all nets, as well as rotate or flip the selected components. The generated circuits can be printed, exported to PCB file format, or saved as templates.
All in all, PCB Artist provides excellent image quality and a handy set of parameters for helping you create digital electronic circuits and schemas.
