Fabrication guidance Day and time: This semester, cutting your PCB is arranged by an appointment only. You are invited to assist in the fabrication process. Best dates: Tu, Th, and Fri. Please send me an email first. Cost: Free for reasonable jobs. But, repeated jobs (for example due to errors) will cost you or you will need to send them outside. Files needed to cut PCBs: PLEASE, READ THIS SECTION VERY CAREFULLY. You need to bring/emaila single directory with four files(plus optional when applicable): 1) Top copper file (Gerber) 2) Bottom copper file (Gerber) 3) Drill file (Excellon), 4) Board contour file (Gerber) Optional Mechanical holes/cut-outs file (as non-plated holes: Excellon) Optional Rubout file for each layer, when applicable(Gerber) Double check: To be absolutely sure your files are in good condition and contain proper data, please use Gerber viewer software of a different company to check your design graphics. For example, I use very simple gerbv open-source application: NOTES: If you do not have a board contour file, your board will not be cut (!) If you email/bring additional files that are not needed, your board will not be cut (!) If you include (more than allowed) text/graphics or additional symbols (dimensions, etc.), your board will not be cut (!) Additional information: For current limits calculation use on-line resources such as: Board cutout all cutout data must be included in the board contour file. You can cut complex shapes (including internal cutouts). Consider that the tool used to do this job is a 2mm (or 1mm depending on board size and thickness) mill end. Therefore, internal corners will be rounded accordingly.
