Altium Designer – Tutorial 1 – Placing components and starting a project

I have always been excited about PCB design and decided to learn Altium Designer which is a huge upgrade from the KiCAD I used before. As I learn I love to teach others, so I decided to post a few video tutorials with basics of Altium Designer.

Getting started with Altium Designer

In this video I am simply creating a first project based on a LM555 circuit I found online (Credits: 555 Blinker circuit) and showing how to place the very basic components in Altium Designer.

The full tutorial will showcase how to make a PCB, so stay tuned and make sure to let me know if you have any comments/suggestions for a future video.
