# Adding Raspberry Pi Hat edge-cuts and holes in Kicad (after schematic capture)

I'm looking for a way (in KiCad 5x) to build a Raspberry Pi HAT around a design that has already been completed. That is, I did not start with a Pi Hat TEMPLATE ... I hope to find a way to add it after the (schematic capture) phase. I need edge cuts , hole placement and connector alignment that is known to be correct. I see its easy if you start with a Pi HAT TEMPLATE but I need to get the dimensions right AFTER the design is completed. How could I do this in KiCAd?

Open pcbnew as a stand-alone application and load your completed board file.
Navigate to the location where your templates are stored. For me, that is /usr/local/share/kicad/template/ but it may be different on your system. You can find where by looking at the path in the "Preferences -> Configure Paths" menu.
Select and open the raspberrypi_hat.kicad_pcb file.
