How to Design Circuit with NodeMCU in Fritzing?

Fritzing is an open-source software to design circuits, PCB, and write code for Arduino devices. Fritzing provides components from a variety of designers and producers. Besides, one can use any custom components by adding the part file which has a file extension fzpz. In this post, we'll learn how to design circuits with NodeMCU in Fritzing.

Steps to Design Circuit with NodeMCU in Fritzing

1. Download Fritzing Software

  1. To download Fritzing, visit Fritzing.org. But, if you want save money, you can download it from a third-party website Filehorse.
  2. After downloading, move the zip file to a directory where you want to install Fritzing.
  3. Unzip the zip file.
  4. In the unzipped directory, there is a file named Fritzing.exe. Make a shortcut to the Fritzing.exe file in your desktop (optional).

2. Add NodeMCU Part File to Fritzing

To add the NodeMCU part file to Fritzing, do the following:

  1. Download the NodeMCU part file NodeMCU v1.0.
  2. Open the Fritzing software.
  3. To add the part file, go to File --> Open... and select the NodeMCU---.fzpz part file.
  4. The part file will be added to the library.
  5. To add NodeMCU to the library, right-click on the part file and select Add to bin... --> My Parts.
