Hi everyone … working on my first PCB board. Hope you can help me.
I really want to use a 90-degree mount pushbutton and slide switch, but I don’t see any in the parts library. Something like this one: http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/TE-Connectivity-Alcoswitch/2-1825027-0/?qs=sGAEpiMZZMvxtGF7dlGNpm7%2bGk7u7aRfXlszCYDorL8%3D
I tried to use the parts editor but got very quickly overwhelmed.
So, maybe someone could help me in one of the following ways:
- Point me to some appropriate switches (both slide and pushbutton) that already have Fritizing parts generated somewhere on the web
- Actually help me make these parts and then share them with the community
- Guide me through how to do this myself in the parts editor
I have read the parts_editor_help.html that comes with Fritzing but it just seems to assume that (A) I know how the old editor worked, and (B) I know how to edit SVG files. I know neither. There must be an easy button somewhere? Am I even asking in the right place?
Thanks! I love how easy it has been to get to this point and I’m ready to go except that I want to lay out these parts on my board so I can send it off to be printed.
