Things are going well with the DM77. A new revision of the PCB is on my desk, ready for some tests.
In the meantime, I’ve just received the new 10HP Front Panel. It’s cute in black!

In the previous topic where I explained how to create your BOM from the KiCad’s XML export, I mentioned my own script generator, written in Ruby, xml2csv.rb.
It’s nothing fancy at all and there are already tons of BOM generators out there, but it’s always fun to create your own tool, suiting your very own special needs.

I’m switching from KiCad 3 to KiCad 4.

The downside is, it requires additional steps before you can actually generate a BOM. It seems a bit complicated but it’s not. Read below.
