The import function is beta now, please check carefully after imported.

Some design rules EasyEDA doesn’t support yet.

Import Schematic and PCB

  1. You can import Altium Designer’s Schematic and PCB files into EasyEDA but only from ASCII files, so you need to save the designs as Ascii files like this.

Schematic save as “Advanced Schematic ascii (*.SchDoc)”

PCB save as “PCB ASCII File (*.PcbDoc)”

Then import it via: File - Open - Altium…

EasyEDA offers an excellent experience in importing Alitum Designer’s Schematic and PCB as you can see from the image below of a schematic imported from Altium Designer:

If your schematic and PCB are Protel 99se format files, please open at Altium Designer and save as ASCII format, and then import them. EasyEDA don’t support Protel 99se file format directly.

  1. If you import Altium schematic found some text became unreachable code, please encode your ASCII file with UTF-8.

Notice:

  • EasyEDA doesn’t sopport to import the Alitum PCB rules now.
  • EasyEDA doesn’t sopport to import the Alitum PCB inner plane layer, please modify manually after imported.
  • EasyEDA doesn’t sopport to import the Alitum IEEE symbol of the schematic now.
  • Please do not export your design to Alitum and import it again and again, that will cause some detail missing!!!
  • If the Alitum file very large that will using a long time to import, suggested remove the copper first before importing.

Import Altium libraries

Altium Designer’s Schematic and Footprintraries are not available as ASCII files, EasyEDA can’t import them directly, so how can you import them?

In the Import file from your computer dialog to the right of File Operation; tick the Extract Libs option and EasyEDA will extract all of the libs from the Schematic files or PCB Files.

So, if you want to import Altium Designer’s Libs, you can add them to your Altium Designer Schematic or PCB and then extract them again into your EasyEDA library.
