PCBWeb
is a FREE CAD tool for PCB Designing for Electronics hobbyists. If we need to duplicate a project or just need to use some previously made libraries in Eagle, then that is the time “Import Part Libraries” feature will be handy.

  1. Eagle Libraries – If you extract the parts library from an eagle file, then you will have this eagle parts library with a file extension of “.lbr”.

Let’s try this feature and we’ll guide you through the two ways of importing parts libraries with the assumption that you already have an eagle file library,

Using EAGLE libraries:

Step 1: Open PCBWeb Designer App

Step 2: Click File menu

toolbar_menu Step 3: Click Import Parts

file_menu

 

Step 4: Click Eagle parts libraries

eagl_part_libraries

Step 5: Click Yes button when this prompt appears

import_parts_into Step 6: Choose your eagle library file and click Open

Step 7: This will appear under library tab, this means you have successfully added the library in your my parts catalog.

Step 8: You can now use your newly exported library.
