 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I was reading the post about which PCB drawing program was the best, and I think most people said Eagle was the easiest to use but didn't like the price or the limitations on the free version. I have used Eagle before and I thought it was okay, kind of confusing on how things worked because I didn't know how to use it. So the reason for this post is does anyone have any good links to websites that have step by step tutorials on how to use Eagle? I would like to get more familiar with it, thanks!

If you're learning something - I'd suggest learning KiCAD as it can use EAGLE libraries but is completely free and doesn't have the limitations (such as board size) which EAGLE has.

Be patient.

IMHO Eagle is not intuitive, put aside a couple of frustrating days to get the hang of it and actually produce your first PCB layout.

Once you have got the hang of it, you will probably love it.
