Which PCB Design software should I use?

I just got a Nano in the mail this weekend and I have a project in mind. It uses a 34 pin idc connector/header, the kind the you would see on a floppy disk drive controller board. I installed KiCAD and started playing around with it. I can not find this component in the schematic's library. I've tried to create this component but being new to KiCAD I'm not having much luck. Which PCB Design software should I be using for this project, or should I continue with KiCAD.

...s. What is the best free PCB designing application..?? - Product Design - Arduino Forum!

Hi, You may try pcbmaking.com to get your job done quickly and effectively. It gives big discount on various PCB and also FREE shipping.

Check newark.com and see if they have an eagle library for that part already.
That might influence your choice of software.
Sparkfun & Adafruit also have large libraries of parts you can download.
At the same time 34 pins of pins on 0.1" pitch can be faked with 3 2x8 headers and 1 2x10 header. You have to manually leave space around the pins for the IDC connector body.

Hi rjpeek,
I have used Diptrace for years, it’s free very user friendly. I find Eagle a nightmare to work with, others love it!
Diptrace also does schematics and schematic capture etc. comes with lots of libraries, and lets you build up you own library with your own specific parts and modified parts…
