oh, Fusion hack chat? let the CAD religion wars begin :)
Yeah, I think that's where we're headed. Plus the cries for native Linux support.
to put fuel into that fire: I am SO happy we're working with SW at our company. it has some little features which makes working so much faster than Inventor. and I've been a hardcore IV fan for years
Guess that's not what todays chat is about though, so I'll be out this time hehe
Hi. There have been so many fascinating Hack Chats that I have missed, I feel like I've lost something crucial. So here I am turning over a new leaf.
@Les Hall don't worry, transcripts are always available =) I too try to attend, but often it just isn't an option, we all have real life stuff =(
Welcome! We've had quite a few great chats this year, glad you're here now!
very excited for this one, been an eagle and fusion 360 user for years
I used Eagle for ages, then recently I downloaded it and it's all different.
Hi Everyone, hope you are all well!
Hi back atcha.
Hello @Jorge Garcia
Hey Les, yeah I know EAGLE's changed a lot if you haven't used it in a while its going to seem very different. The bones are the same, EAGLE's just put on more muscle mass :)
Hey everyone. Where are we posting questions? (besides that one)
That's good to know @Jorge Garcia. More powerful is good to hear.
Hi Audi, once Matt jumps on you post them here and he'll answer. I can take care of some technical EAGLE questions in the meantime.
Thanks @Jorge Garcia
@Audi McAvoy - Matt Berggren from Autodesk hasn't logged on yet. We should be ready to start in around 5 minutes
Here's a question: I recall Eagle's Gerber generation was always a pain. Has that been made easier?
@Les Hall since the introduction of the one click manufacturing export
Hi Les, considerably easier now. You have a one-click CAM option that analyzes your board stackup and uses the right template.
which happened in the 9.x version I think
I would say it cannot be made easier :D
hey hey, happy siblings day
Is this chat going to be constrained to Eagle? Or is general 2D CAD also on the table?
up to you.
You also get more visual feedback in the CAM processor so if you need to do something special it's easier to do.
Eagle definitely changed for the better
I can riff about 2D cad in general
I'm smiling a big grin at one click Gerbers!
Ahh yep, @Les Hall that needed to happen for ages!
(except for the new icon order, which drives me nuts)
Hi Matt., welcome aboard. We'll get started in a few
no sweat...I heard when clint eastwood directs, he doesnt actually say action...he just...
