Is there a Fritzing "part" that represents the Fubarino SD board, v1.5?

Not that I know if. It's on my list of things to do though.

I'm now working on a Fritzing part for Fubarino SD. I'll let you know as soon as I have it ready (should be before the weekend).

I've created a Fritzing part for Fubarino SD v1.5. This is my first Fritzing part, so I may have screwed something up. Could you take a look at it and see if you can find anything that doesn't make sense?
Here's a link to the file in GitHub:

Wow, the part looks great to me. I have it on a breadboard in Fritzing 0.9.1.
I have two suggestions: label the SD card and USB connectors. They look like grey areas to me. And I wonder if it is possible to make a Fritzing part for the underside of the Fubarino? Let's bear in mind that I'm not very skilled, so if this seems impractical, don't worry about it.
I am just starting out with Fritzing, so I will surely screw something up as I learn. Also, I managed to get an eye infection (my eye doctor found a bit of plastic on my eye, and this triggered off a lot of pain and a big infection) so I'm not at my best just right now.
If I'm feeling well enough on Sunday, I'll be un-American, skip the Super Bowl, and play with both Fritzing and the Fubarino.
Thanks, Brian -- thanks very much for all your effort to make the Fritzing part for the Fubarino. Now, I can diagram what I am doing with the Fubarino, and also show it to my friends who may also become interested in this. This part is a huge help for my documentation efforts, and I'm very grateful for it.

Bob - so glad you are liking it!
I've created an updated Fritzing part based on your suggestions. Just download the file again from GitHub and re-import into your Fritzing application. Instead of labeling the USB and microSD connectors, I simply added realistic graphic details so it's obvious what they are. I also made the pin holes real holes so you can see through them. :-)
I'm curious what the use case is for a Fritzing part of the 'underside' of the Fubarino SD board. What did you have in mind there?

Thank you for updating the part so fast. I will play with it some more soon.
About my use case for the reverse side of the Fubarino...this caused me to look again at the manual for it, and my phone's photo collection, to see if either the manual or my phone contains a photo of the reverse side. It does not look like one exists.
My memory, which might be wrong, is that the reverse side of the Fubarino has test points. Even if I'm right, I don't know how to use them. I was just thinking that perhaps they ought to be shown as a Fritzing part, too. I could be wrong about the existence of the test points, though. I will probably pry my Fubarino off the breadboard to check, and to photograph the underside of it, too.
This is not a big deal to me. The newly-invented Fritzing part for the Fubarino is a big deal for me. Thanks a ton!
Thanks a lot

There are not, to my knowledge, any test points on the back side of the Fubarino SD board. You have access to exactly the same header pins that you do on the top.
However, there may be other boards that do have unique pads on the back side. But I'm not sure how you would represent those in Fritzing. Something to ponder . . .

So many thanks for your help! I'm pleased to have the updated Fritzing parts.
If you are a Super Bowl person, enjoy the game.
