    Koo,

    For the few people who need the schematic and board for this project, they can download the clean* project “V-USB kicad project (clean)” just below part 2.

    * not sure if it would pass your standard

    Cheers

    Nice vid, but clearly not done by someone who needs this board to actually work.
    Why not add a few vias after discovering that ‘these nets are impossible to route’ ? It’s either that or cancel the project and have a beer.

    hi thomas,

    look at the video pcbnew, near 2:55. you will find this dialog in Design Rules. the goal is to create a new class and then assign it to a net. i never had to use this feature, i cannot tell you exactly how.

    cheers

    Great thanks for the tutorial that is what i need. Is there any possibility to route nets with predefined width and clerance?

    Cheers

    PS. You may consider using Ivona synthetizer http://www.ivona.com/.

    Really nice work. It is bit too fast though for beginners. It would be even more helpful if you can provide the transcript of the speech, especially the schematic video, when many new short hand command is introduced, so that it can be followed more slowly.

    Nice. Can you list the tools you used to make the video. Text to speech used also?
