Starting a board layout from net/parts list


I worked as a circuit board designer before college and would like to get back into it on a freelance basis. The last CAD system I used in the service bureau I worked at before college was Pads Perform. It provided the ability to start a design job from a parts-net list ascii file provided by the customer.

Does LibrePCB have the ability to start a circuit board layout project from a parts-net list?

Many thanks in advance

Hi Walt,

No, unfortunately LibrePCB does not have any net list import functionality. The only way is to draw the schematic from scratch…
