Hi
How do I go about to create a part from a pcb. I want to use and Adafruit module as a plugged in part on my pcb.
I have the Adafruit design so now I am trying to make a part of that module's pcb.

Hi Marius,

Just measure the pin locations, and create a new part in EAGLE with pads in the correct places. In other words, it can be treated much the same as for creating any arbitrary new component in EAGLE.
If your adafruit module has pins on a standard pitch, it is likely to be 2.54mm.
To see how to create a part in EAGLE, see the EAGLE user manual PDF guide, or there are many youtube videos on this subject.

Which part do you like to create?
May be that this part may exist.

That is what I ended up doing. Just made a part of my own. There is a script for doing though but it fails and I dont have enough knowledge of Eagle to try and fix it. I attached it if anyone want to have a look. If it worked it would have saved a lot of time.

The ULP to use is make-group2pac.ulp

Grab the Adafruit board file and open it in Eagle.
Remove all except the board outline, and elements that give you the
pads, tPlace and mounting holes you need.
Group the remainder and run the ulp.
It will make a package that you can place into your design. The rest of
the devise can be built as desired.

Attached: Image of the result of the process.
