Downloading models is entirely free. There are no monthly limits. The way we're able to do this is through working with distributors and component vendors. The Terms refers to our InstaPart service. It allows you to get a part in 24h if it's not already in our library. We then make it available for the entire community to download freely thereafter. However, if you just use the free library, then no fees would apply. Also, we're constantly adding parts based on popularity, so over time we should have everything you need already in the free library. Let me know if you have any more questions!

Hi Natasha,    I designed a PCB (retired EE/hobbyist) about a year ago using Eagle. I might not be doing another PCB any time soon, but I'm curious if or when costs kick in. Your website  https://www.snapeda.com/ says "download free symbols and footprints", but your Terms mention fees. Could you shed a little light on this?

Thanks for the clarification, totally understand. Yeah by itself that looked like a strange point to emphasize, so interpretation could be pretty sensitive. Thanks again for clarifying.

Thank you for your comment. What I meant, was that there are two tracks in Electrical & Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto. One is focused on computer engineering. The other is focused on electrical engineering. Instead of focusing on the computer side (where I could have taken more software development classes), I focused on analog electronics. Sometimes when quotes are shortened, the meaning can get lost. I appreciate you giving me this opportunity to clarify that!

I'm in the camp which thinks this portrayal is not as flattering as would be expected. Besides the title's blunt gender emphasis, there's the part where she blames her alma mater for not being able to code. I don't know, I would hardly make that attribution.

I think "female" in the title is appropriate. How many women in our industry are doing what she has been able to do? Very few! I applaud her and the team she has put together. Bravo!

Nice story - wrong headline

I love the story - and admire the entrepreneurial spirit.   However -- WHY 'female' in the title?  It just goes to point out the gender-biased thinking, as if a woman achieveing something like this is an oddity.  The 'most' that would be appropriate is use of the pronoun that gives away the gender.
