Feature Request: Matrix Board/Protoboard
Feb 7th, 2009 at 7:47pm
Hey, Just bought VEECAD and have already made a couple of successful projects.. it's great, nice job.

A suggestion for a future feature would be for there to be a matrix board / protoboard layout mode.. i.e. stripboard without the strips, just holes.
I'd find this really handy.

Anyway, again nice work and hope to see continued updates to this invaluable little tool.

Hello and Welcome to the forum!

Good to hear that VeeCAD is useful for you.

A matrix board editor is an interesting project - with possibilities for creative routing algorithms and placement aids.  It would have to be a separate project to VeeCAD.  Unfortunately I don't have the time!

One suggestion is to use VeeCAD to draw your layout, then load the parts and links onto matrix board.  Then run thin solid bare wires on the back to replace the strips.  It might work nicely on smaller projects.
