Thank you both … Peter and Old Grey
I have some graphic experience and may want to do some editing of parts in the future. Your library is pretty darn good for the majority of users I imagine!
My intention is to use Fritzing as the PCB fabricator (unless there is an alternative for beginners such as myself)
Old Grey had mentioned [quote=“Old_Grey, post:24, topic:3995”]
I use toner transfer with that Ebay yellow wax paper etch and tin
Is that going to give me the text labels as well? I would then have to drill the holes I am sure.
I am not sure I want to try to drill and etch my own board … for several reasons, such as the silkscreen labels for text, and the exactness required for drilling so many holes with 1mm spacing. Am I wrong in this assumption? If I had a CNC machine, or you know of a modestly priced alternative … I could be persuaded to give it a try. But for now spending $100 US for 3 sets of the 2 boards seems reasonable. Certainly if I were doing larger production, it would be different.
I will post final efforts soon. Let me know what your thoughts are about “self etch” vs. “commercial fabrication”.
