Eagle Premium no longer included with Fusion for hobbyists?

(1/10) > >>

Hi all,

Was a bit shocked when I went to renew my Eagle Premium subscription that used to come with Fusion, only to find that it now only includes the Free tier.

That kind of screws me over, since my current project is within the 80cm board area, but using 4 layers. I cant fix one of the inner layers for a board revision since it is outside of the 2 layer scope included in the free tier.

Have I missed something, or is this the end of Eagle for slightly more ambitious hobbyists? My board requirements almost universally blow the free tier specs because I tend to design more complex projects.

I hate to say it, but Ive now begun looking into KiCad as a replacement, and will have to re-do my current project in that to make further modifications. I really like Eagle, but as someone who only does PCB design for fun and enjoyment and does no 3D design I cant really justify the price of a higher tier.


They explicitly stated that they want to kill Eagle and re-implement the whole thing from scratch using fusion graphic engine. So, Eagle is not long for this world anyway. It will be dropped any time now.

You gotta wonder why they bought it if they're intending to scrap it.

maybe they didn't look too closely at the code before they bought it? or maybe they didn't really care they just wanted the user base

Yes, I presume the user base. And may be idiot managers.  From a technical point of view, I could have told that it would not be easy to integrate even without looking at either code base. But mangers typically don't care about stuff like this - "just make it work".
