Export PCB In PDF/PNG/SVG

Exporting a PCB design or footprints from EasyEDA is very similar to exporting a Schematic or a Symbol.

Using:

Document > Export > PDF/PNG/SVG…

you can open this dialog:

You can select to export in PDF, PNG or SVG format.

Note: If you want to print the PCB 1:1 with the paper, you need to choose to export PDF(1:1).

You can select to print individual layers or selected layers merged into a single file.

It is also possible to mirror selected layers for example to show bottom layers in easily readable orientation.

And you can use the Gerbv to export the PDF, it is very easy.
