Soldering Jig by LucidOne Feb 25, 2012

Description

Here is an idea from our manufacturing team at I Heart Engineering for speeding up the assembly process for through hole components. Great for making sure your connector is not put on crooked and is ideal for short production runs.

That looks great. It made me think we need something that automatically generates the jig from PCB eCAD files. I think it should be possible with KiCAD.
Here is one I made for a small production run of 10 boards that turned in to a large run of 100 boards: thingiverse.com/thing:13914

I got my soldering time (for the through holes) to about a minute at the end. Saved me a lot of headaches!
