    How does KiCad compare to geschem?

    This is nice and all, but the one thing I’d like to see is a tutorial on how to properly lay out a circuit board in one of these CAD tools. All of these PCB how-to’s assume that you know how to find the mechanical specifications for a specific chip into a proper pad placement and size in these CAD tools.

    Please somebody show the process of turning a schematic into a PCB using a CAD tool.
