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.


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 GitHub repository.
