Perfectly spaced circular layout in Eagle

Posted on Monday, August 20th, 2012 in Eagle, tutorials by DP

Mats shared his method of aligning, and positioning all the LEDs on his clock in a perfect circle. He wrote an online PHP script that outputs Eagle commands that position, and rotate the LEDs depending on the parameters you enter into it.

I have written a php script that generates a bunch of moves and rotates to move parts in circles that I use when I want something spaced evenly in a circle. Enter parameters, hit submit, copy the code and paste into the command area in the board editor.

    Well, I’ve done a number of clocks, but the one on the blog post is not of my design. But the PHP script is mine… :-)
