Do you know any good and easy software to use for making simple PCB’s?

I use the Eagle PCB and it is very easy and reliable

There are lots of software all over the market. What do you really want to do?

Well actually it will be my first time to make a pcb using a software. Until now I use a pen to draw the pcb on the copper directly but I cannot make any fancy good looking pcb’s. I want to have a start to something more ‘professional’. You understand.

Well mosquito, Eagle PCB is as I believe quite easy for a beginner and there is also a version free to test with some limitations regarding the size and the part numbers per pcb. But I believe is best for you.

Orcad I use and I like it a lot. Huge library. But I think is not very easy for a beginner.

Yes you are right. Orcad is very good and very hard. Mosquito do not start with orcad. And also it is not free

Do you want just to draw PCB or you want to draw the schematic and then have the PCB from the schematic? There are cheaper and more easy programs that are used just to draw PCBs. But nothing more. Only PCBs. No schematic and then transfer to PCB...

Well i think that there is a version of Eagle that is free and has only limitations in pins and dimensions but for beginning is very good. Bothering with just a PCB drawing software worths not the time that he will waste. It's better to start with a good software because if he don;t he will probably do the same job twice in the future

I want to make schematic and then automatically transfer it to PCB. I just will arrange the parts and the lines will be automatically drawn. I suppose this Eagle can do it e?
