Examples of Boards Designed With Fritzing

The following article appeared in Hackaday. The premise is that development in Fritzing has stopped, the project appears to be dead. It is a shame, because in this cloud computing era, I like open source tools like Fritzing and Sketchup that can be installed and run forever in a standard Windows PC.

Over in hackaday,io, Radomir Dopieralski [deshipu] is also a fan of Fritzing and put together a project showing how to do different tasks in Fritzing.

So far, the worst I have noticed is that a trace bend cannot have 4 traces branching out. Otherwise, I have not found other showstoppers with Fritzing. I do not use the autorouter for the latest boards.

The following posts show some of the good and bad of designing boards with Fritzing.
