How to send vscores off for gerbering two PCBs at once?

(1/3) > >>

Faringdon:
Hi,
Just been web searching to find out how to gerber up PCBs with vscores.
I have used a  0.1mm "vscore" line over the 0.1mm "dimension" lines.

Will this be OK to gerber up like this?
Do i have to give details separately of the vscore dimensions?

I wish to have just these two boards made up.

Do you ever make an effort to do your own research?    :-//

A 5 minute search of JLCPCB's technical support, for instance, tells you exactly how to do panelization and their capabilities.
An other fab house, Elecrow, that I use has a similar description for their panelization.

We're all too willing to help, but you MUST make an effort to find the information first!   :box:

You haven't even told us which fab house you use.

 :rant: over.

"Gerber" is a (proper) noun.

Thanks, yes, i see that you've got to order PCBs in lots of 5.
So if i want to put 5 different PCB's on one panel......then i cant do that.......well i can...but i'll have to pay for 5 lots of that......i must buy 5 lots of that...ie 25 PCBs.
I thought there was some way round this?

..Unfortunately, on JLCPCB and everywhere else, what we want is a "special" and isnt dealt with by the PCB bargain trawler sites like PCBSHOPPER.com.
You simply cant spec up 5 different PCBs on one panel......you end up with 5 of whatever you spec....so that woudl give us 25 boards...when we only want 5.

Even JLCPCB's online PCB quote tool cant deal with this....you have to email them and ask.

I was hoping to put it into the bargain trawler sites like PCBshopper, and then select the cheapest place...but this isnt possible it seems.

Yes deffo big on own research....as you can see here in my free download SMPS course......i would love to know how many  thousands of times this has been downloaded .......it must be zillions as i used to get sheds of emails asking for the link when i accidentally  unshared it....

I  wonder how i can find out how many times its been downloaded....i have to sign up for google apps unlimited but that costs.

Are you only wanting one of each board? If so, I don't think v-scoring is going to work for you since the scoring will be completely across the panel in horizontal or vertical lines. The gerber you show has board of different sizes, and while the vertical score is probably OK, the horizontal one (needed to make the smaller PCB from the larger panel) isn't.

V-score would be better when all the boards are the same size (so you can place them in a grid and get full horizontal and vertical score lines), which would normally mean all the same board. If you want different boards on a panel then routing is the way to go.
