Routing: More Angles Means More Fun!

Today we’re launching two new features to make routing easier. The first is two segment routing. This improvement to the trace tool allows you to draw two trace segments with a single click. It creates two segments at a 45 degree angle. This makes it much easier to route boards and position traces with accuracy.

We’ve also improved the grid features in the PCB editor. You can now set a custom grid size and move the origin of the grid. This makes it easier to route small components since you can align the grid however you want. To use it, click ‘Grid’ in the bottom right corner of the editor and select ‘Custom Grid…’ From here you can set the grid size, units, and offset.

Both these features are now live in the PCB editor, and you can use them immediately in your projects.
