It is made with some inspiration from Mr. Baranovsky ans Svofski (klonor-kicad). TODO: - documentation - cleanup - s = Sheet() shouldn't contain any stuff after creation - tests
hierarchicalKiCad/clone.py hierarchicalKiCad/hierarchicalKiCad.py hierarchicalKiCad/layClones.py hierarchicalKiCad/refTools.py It uses eeschema library above. hierarchicalKiCad.py is wxPython utility to create high level schematics containng subsheets copied from existing schematics. Program cares itself about, references. existing schematics must have drawed rectangle around content. You can specify number of copies, the subschematics are copied, modified and saved. I recommend new folder for this "build". You must than normally contiune in eeschema: annotate, netlist. Then goto pcbnew and import netlist. Then comes the time for second utility. TODO: - documentation - Restart reference numbering, right now is good to have every template referenced from 1 (R1,R2,... etc.) to avoid high reference number buildup - Bounding box automatical. layClones.py is wxPython utility able to do board outline and layout of clones from preceeding layouts. You need to provide high-level schematic builded step before and board dimensions in mm. Template layouts should have the same name.kicad_pcb and same path as original template schematics, template pcb outline is specified by common pcb edge outline. pcbnew scripting inspired by LordBlick TODO: - Implement zones - backup pristine (only netlist imported), it would need some consistency check - backup already existingTest project test1.tar [4.6 MB] contains template files and directories "build1" and "build2" created by this utility. Try make yourself build3 from files in root directory...
