The following footprint naming conventions should be used as examples for naming resistor footprints.
If you do not find an appropriate convention that matches a particular footprint type, either contact the KiCad library team or try to match a convention set by existing library components.
In the entries below, variable fields are denoted as follows:
- Fixed fields
- Mandatory fields
- Optional fields
- Length - Resistor body length
- Diameter - Body diameter
- Pitch - Lead spacing
- Modifiers - Modifiers to footprint specifications (Optional)
- Orientation - Resistor orientation (Vertical / Horizontal) (Optional)
- Options - Extra footprint options (Optional)
