asciilifeform: ^ there does not currently exist a decent pcb cad. at. all. ☟︎
asciilifeform: !#s from:asciilifeform pcb cad
asciilifeform: ben_vulpes: the classical cd shipped with sources, but not for some of the more interesting items (e.g. 'ns' chip and pcb layout cad; systemolade of various sorts (e.g. fep) etc )
