Title: DRC for eagle
Post by: robotly on November 22, 2016, 01:53:01 pm
Hi, is there any suggestion for Eagle DRC? I did a single layer PCB with Eagle, before I send the file to PCB fab I want to know whether the 0 mil tolerance of the board Edge is ok?

Thanks

who's the fabricator ?
they often have a DRC file on their website you can download to check your board against

oh yes, there are manufacturing DRC file on their website, but it is too humble in their website

?!? 

The discussion in this thread is about using the DRC, and how to set up the DRC parameters. I don't think anyone here wanted to develop the DRC implementation. And, last time I looked, Eagle was not open source anyway...

This tends to depend on the particular board fabricator (I'm not sure why.)   The eagle default is 40mils (HUGE!), and I try to avoid fine tracks near the edge (just cause I've USED router bits...), but I don't have any worries about letting the ground plane get within 10mil or so of the edge...

A long time ago, I wrote an instructable suggesting that most hobbyists should adjust the DRC parameters so that the resulting board is easier for hobbyists to build (and more robust, physically.)   https://www.instructables.com/id/Make-hobbyist-PCBs-with-professional-CAD-tools-by-/ (https://www.instructables.com/id/Make-hobbyist-PCBs-with-professional-CAD-tools-by-/)
