BrickPi PCB design


#1

Hi,

I bought BrickPi from Amazon.de last year in August. I want to solder some new connections on the PCB. Can I get the PCB CAD file for it? Just so that you know, I don’t know what is the version. Although I see some old schematic and board files in hardware section but I don’t know which CAD program I need to use to view them (I tried eaglePCB, didn’t work).

Waiting for the reply,
Regards,
Ali

If you don’t know the type, Do you have a picture of the board then? a clear picture of the BrickPi from above?

Hi John,

I hope that the image is good enough.

Waiting for your reply,
Thanks,

Sorry seams like the forum corps it. here is a rotated one.

This is our old version. Files for it should be here: https://github.com/DexterInd/BrickPi/tree/master/Hardware%20Design/Old%20Files%20for%20Historical%20Purposes%20Only

The brd files should work with Eagle PCB. If you can’t open them, can you tell me what error you’re getting?


#6

Can you please let me know the version? Is there some marking on the board mentioning it?

The error in Eagle PCB:

Loading BrickPi 1.7.3.sch …

Error:

line 6, column 41: This is not an EAGLE file.

Thanks for the support.

I managed to open the board files in Eagle PCB. The problem was that I was saving an individual file by right clicking which added html formatting to the file. I didn’t want to clone the whole repository either. So I downloaded the file in raw. It worked.

I guess, the version number is 1.7.3. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Best,

Ali, I think the problem might be on your end. Sounds like you got it solved. I just opened the files up on Eagle Cad with no issue.

Yep, the version you want to look at is 1.7.3
