    I don't see the required component in eagle library

    How to make PCB board for my circuit?

    Re: Push button with Pull Up

    which component are you talking about?

    the resistor?
    the push button?
    the connector?

    the resistor:
    click on new part
    scroll down to rcl library
    if you like european symbols, use R-EU_ (resistors look like rectangles with leads)
    if you like american symbols, use R-US_ (resistors look like triangle wave with leads)
    then resistors are listed by size so:
    0204/5 is 2 mm by 4 mm case size with 5 mm between through hole pins
    is there is a V after the numbers, the case is mounted vertically, like a tower, rather than the usual horizontally
    pick the correct size based on the dimensions of your chosen resistor

    the push button:
    at the bottom of library list, put "push" (without quotes) in search box
    use something from swich library
    OR
    go to switch library and look around a little

    the connector looks like
    Phoenix Contact COMBICON MC, 3.81mm Pitch, 3 Way, 1 Row, Right Angle PCB Terminal Block Header, 1803280
    look in the con-phoenix-(size) library, where size is the correct pin spacing

    many thanks wwfeldman

    I see this package for push button

    TOGGLE SWITCH

    Footprint: MS243 (Version 1)
    TOGGLE SWITCH

    3D Package: MS243 (Version 1)

    I do not find Phoenix Contact COMBICON MC in library I have downloaded it https://github.com/chiengineer/Eagle...hoenix-508.lbrand placed under C:\Users\ansh\Documents\EAGLE\libraries

    How to add this part in the library?

    Would be in xx381 not xx508 library. If this particular type isn't supported, use the next best 3.81 mm 3 pin connector.

    @ansh11
    a toggle switch is not a push button
    a toggle switch, in its simplest form, is an on off switch
    the switch in your photograph is a momentary contact push button - likely close on push

    the phoenix contact library is not listed that way - its listed as con-phoenix-(size)
    were size is a three digit number, like 381, or 58 as FvM points out

    so I downloaded library switch-tact for push button https://www.diymodules.org/download/...witch-tact.lbr

    and placed under C:\Users\ansh\Documents\EAGLE\libraries

    but when I search switch-tact I don't get it

    The selected component has apparently 2.54 mm pin distance, indicated both by the name and the ruler. Having it in a xx381 library seems erroneous.

    Personally I'm rarely using predefined libraries, defining the required components myself. It's easy and straightforward in most CAD tools.
