Can we automate DesignSpark PCB using Python or C++


I would like to know if there are efforts going on to provide a scripting API for DesignSpark PCB. This is especially important if DesignSpark PCB must get integrated into the Design Industry. EDA tools offer various levels of scriptability and the best ones offer a very high level. This allows teams to download these tools and then set them up to cater to their unique design and development processes. Across designers and across teams these tool setups allow a team to be focussed and move ahead with design at a faster rate.
DesignSpark PCB must start offering some kind of scripting API in popular programming languages such as Python, C++, etc.

APIs for simpler automation can be provided in the free version, and more scriptability may be part of the Pro version.

Designspark owners please take heed to this advice.

Best Regards,

Vishal Sapre

No this is not a supported feature of DSPCB or Pro.
The software is designed to be self contained and meet the requirements of designers as a personal system.
DSPCB provides the basics required for many designers and is free and allows PCB's to produced by any manufacturer.
Pro is designed for the needs of those who require enhanced features at a competitive price, but scripting is not supported.
