Footprints

The KiCad footprint libraries are the individual .pretty directories. Each .pretty directory contains multiple .kicad_mod footprint files. These footprints are best used in combination with the official symbol libs and 3d model libs.

Requirements

The files packaged here are intended for KiCad version 5 or nightly builds that support rounded rectangle and polygon pads.

Updating via Git

Users who wish to keep footprint libraries up to date can track the https://github.com/kicad/kicad-footprints GitHub repository.

Contributing

Users who wish to contribute to the footprint libraries can submit a pull request at http://github.com/kicad/kicad-footprints
