MakePCB panelization
« on: November 26, 2010, 07:29:14 pm »
I was wondering if anyone has gone with MakePCB for panelized designs. They offer panelization of your design but I need fiducials, etc.

Basically I have never panelized a design before, and don't really know how I should indicate where to put the vscoring. Perhaps it is universally the same even if you don't use makePCB. PCBcart seems more expensive for my volume.

I wrote them about this but I didn't hear anything back, so I'd also be interested in any experiences with them.

PS: As some who is colorblind I found the registration for this forum needlessly hard.

[Can't help with the question, but your postscript caught my eye:]

Hmm, is there a new one?  I don't remember colour featuring when I registered -- although the other day I saw an anti-bot scheme on some blog or other that was "read this resistor colour code", which I find impossible without resorting to using an image editor to sample and match the bands.  So I feel your pain :(

Now, where's my meter?  I have several decades of E12 resistors to sort into bins this evening!

If there's a resistor colour code test, it should have text as well as colour.

You could put per-board fids and only use teh outermost ones, as long as you know what their panelisation pitch will be . Tooling holes may be more of a problem though unless your PCB has large unpopulated borders.

It is the Adafruit site that uses the resistor colour codes.
