StripboardCAD

stripboardcad_app_iconStripboardCAD is intended as a light-weight vero-/stripboard layout drawing app for the iPad, which goal is to ease the creation of the typical type of layout you find here (and elsewhere). This is the tool I always wanted (well, ever since the iPad came out anyway) but couldn’t find anywhere, so I finally decided to put all my other projects aside and focus on making it. It’s been almost exactly a year since then, and I’ve learned a lot, had a lot of fun, lots of frustrating moments etc. You know how this goes… And now the first version is complete (I say first version because I’m not expecting to be done with this just yet)!

stripboardcad_sh1I’ve made this tool first and foremost for myself, and the result will probably reflect that in many ways, but I am also hoping there are a few of you out there who have been looking for something like this, and can make good use of it. I feel I should apologize for not giving this away for free, like a lot of the stuff you’ll find here (to my more economically sensible relatives’ and friends’ dismay), but I hope you feel it’s still a fair price.

I’ve set up a page dedicated to future ideas and feature requests. Feel free to give me suggestions on what to improve or add. I have no clue about half the things I do, so a little guidance is always welcome 🙂

  1. Hi Roy,

    A. No, sorry. And this is not something I’m likely to add anytime soon.
    B. I think I capped the boar size at 128×128 due to graphics performance. You can change the size of the board (and create several board if you like).
    C. No, sorry.
    D. No, sorry. But I’ve thought about it as a potential feature.

    To be honest, it’s not so much a fully feature engineering tool as a glorified point-and-click drawing app. You add parts in whatever fashion you like, asking values, and output an image/PDF.

    Sorry to disappoint.

  2. Hi, looks a nice product, but before I purchase, (which I do feel is a good price), I have a couple of questions.
    A. Can the user define/design our own components and devices to add into a user library ?
    B. Is there any limitation to the size of the strip board and can the board size be specified ?
    C. When a strip board layout is developed from the schematic, can a connection integrity check be done ?
    D. Is there any cind of electrical continuity test carried out, primarily for short circuits etc. .?
