PCB Artist is an easy-to-use, powerful and handy application that enables you to design circuit boards. It has two main advantages that make it truly appealing: it is free and it includes a really comprehensive library of board components and layouts.

In conjunction with the complete library of board components and layouts, the neat and straightforward interface of this intuitive tool makes creating circuit boards a really easy job that can be performed with little effort even by complete beginners. Though easy-to-use and free, it is also feature-rich and powerful. Besides the extensive library it also supports a large variety of functions and features such as "Multi-Page Schematic" and "Netlist Import". Anyway, these are just two mere examples of the many features that this powerful tool supports.

PCB Artist is also pretty lightweight, neat and resource-friendly, so it will run perfectly fine on older computers as well. It also includes some handy tutorials that explain the overall design process as well as the more complex part creation task.

In conclusion, PCB Artist is a really nice tool. It has no flaws, it is free, and it makes designing circuit boards a really simple task.
