Save time by re-using existing packages and symbols .

There are thousands of devices in the ‘default’ library that comes with EagleCAD but whaddyaknow, the exact package/device you need isn’t always going to be one of those thousands. However, instead of making a brand new device from scratch every time you can often ‘merge’ two existing devices, or at least reuse the SMD package. Not only will you save time, but it can minimize mistakes. (Note I say it can – be sure to always always triple check pinouts, package sizes, dimensions and more!)
