Just a minor update. One of the issues I faced with building the boards was the lack of clear parts lists/parts types. Initially this is because I was not totally sure on what parts would be, how much they would all cost and so forth. I just designed what I wanted based on what I could get rather than making it a cost driven design.
Now the limit is because of the lack of information I have put into the schematic designs, and that the fields I need are missing from each component. Adding them is a slow/time consuming process. I am also trying to get KiCad to output a nice CSV BOM file automatically. Presently there is misalignment between the heading of a column and the contents of the column, but I am not sure why as it should work.
