In the last days i was trying to figure out how footprints for KiCAD work. With help from people of this forum, i have achieved in completed all the footprints except one.
I have a pushbutton for an arduino shield. This is the description of the button: https://www.cableworks.gr/ilektronika/arduino-and-microcontrollers/components-and-ic/buttons/5pcs-momentary-tactile-push-button-switch-6x6x6mm-for-arduino/
As you can see there is no datasheet.
I have been trying to figure out how to find a footprint for many hours but i have not reached a conclusion yet.
KiCAD has "codes" to contain information in their footprint libraries, but i have not found documentation on what these codes are.
This is a Through Hole button, but i plan to use it as an SMD one.
I am looking at the Button_Switch_SMD library.
There are hundreds of footprints in there.
The dimensions of the button are 6mm X 6mm.
The distance between the two pins on each side is around 4mm.
I am sorry to ask what some people may consider basic, but i am very frustated and i am one step from designing the board and sending to the board house. Google didn't prove much useful in this case, just KiCAD forum links, 3 years ago, with different libraries.
