I would like to add this part https://fr.rs-online.com/web/p/guides-de-lumieres-led/8796223/ on my eagle board.

I did the schematic (just to be sure it's in the project) and the "footprint" of the component.

My component has no pads only holes.

The problem is, I don't see it in my board design ...

Any idea to solve this ?

there is my symbol enter image description here there is my device : enter image description here there is my component footprint : enter image description here there is the library : enter image description here

  • \$\begingroup\$ So you created the footprint, the symbol, and the device? You need all 3... \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @MarcusMüller I'm displaying all the layer and there is still nothing :-/ I can see my component on my schematic. \$\endgroup\$

I just found something that made it work ! I used the "replace" command to insert the same component and it did the trick. Somehow my library modifications weren't up to date even by using the updating button in the library manager. Thanks for your help guys !

  • \$\begingroup\$ Yes, once you place a device on your schematic it copies everything out of the library into the schematic file regarding that part. If you update the library, you have to manually update the parts in the schematic to match by using the "Replace". Updating in the library doesn't do anything because there is no connection from a library to a schematic/board. \$\endgroup\$
