Eagle Library Part for 2.8" TFTLCD Breakout and Shield?

by owendelong on Sat Mar 03, 2012 10:18 pm

I have the Adafruit .lbr file and couldn't find it in there.

Is there somewhere else I can find an Eagle library for these parts? I've kind of cobbled it together from a 20 pin header and some lines, but, it would be really nice to have the ability to move it all around as a single unit which means a library entry.

I suppose I can build a library part if I have to, but, my skills with the Eagle library editor are painful at best.

Thanks,

Owen

There is now, though I won't guarantee it has all the right stuff in all the right layers.

Let me know if you'd like a copy.

As much as I would like to help the individuals who replied asking for a copy, I don't really have a way to get it to you through this forum.

Primarily, I was asking Adafruit to let me know if they wanted a copy for inclusion into their own libraries. So far, they have not requested such.

Ok, that's what I had thought but it didn't hurt to ask :)
I'm designing a custom PCB with the TFT shield and need the screen perfectly centered in the center of the PCB, so that's what I needed it for.

If you have a Dropbox account, you could make a public folder and drop the file into there, and then post the link?

You can attach files to a post here in the forum.. it's the 'Upload attachment' tab below the box where you compose a message.

There's a limit on file size (a megabyte or so IIRC), but you shouldn't have too much trouble with a zipped library. If necessary, make a new library just for the parts you've created, and you can attach that.
When you void a product warranty, you give up your right to sue the manufacturer if something goes wrong and accept full responsibility for whatever happens next. And then you truly own the product.
