Hello All,

Has anyone here used this software and make a PCB board with a CNC mill?

Let me know I have a Sherline 5400 and PCB bits ready to build a circuit for


Thank you,

Just a few ideas from someone with some experience.


Advanced circuits offers a nice design rule check for free.

www.freedfm.com  This is pretty handy since Eagle does not include a Gerber


In many cases, helpful thing to do is to print a 1X scale rendition of your
board and verify components fit properly and you have clearance between
components. I have skipped that step a number of times and been burned. 


Verify connectivity of all of your nets using Eyeball (Show?) command. Real
handy to have a large monitor or dual monitor computer where you can view
schematic and board at same time as you light up each net.


I seemed to have more problems with getting everything connected on power
and ground busses when I first got started.


I you are using copper pour make sure your isolation distance is not set to
low -- if producing a board without solder mask, in this case I find it a
real pain to remove solder bridges. 


Double check library parts have correct pinouts... (most all do).
