I have been trying to open the blackboard schematics in order to more rapidly create a template pcb with headers accurately placed for connection to the elk board itself. Unfortunately I do not own Altium and the “free” versions of Altium like Circuit Maker and Upverter don’t actually work with the Altium project on Github.
EasyEDA might work but it requires files to be saved as acii rather than binary. Upverter is happy with SCH or SCH+BRD but not Altium project files, even though it says it can open Altium projects.
Is there any way you could re export to a different format or just as ascii rather than binary? Or even better set up a circuitmaker project for easy cloning?
I just spoke with our hardware engineer consultant and he said that unfortunately it’s not very easy. However, there is a tool which sort of works https://github.com/thesourcerer8/altium2kicad. Its kinda okay for the schematics, but not very good for the pcb.
Hi, another question regarding the blackboard. I have one of the first elkpi boards that I got from @Stefano in audio developers conference 2019. I’d like to get a blackboard, but I seem to remember reading somewhere that blsckboard is not compatible with this very first elkpi that I got. Can I get a confirmation about that? Also, any idea if you’ll have blackboards in stock anytime soon? Thanks!
