Producing a board

To get a PCB produced, email the gerber and drill files to sebe-eng-pcb@deakin.edu.au. You will be informed by email when your board is complete.

File preparation

Instructions are based on DipTrace. Please take note of design restraints.

Exporting Gerber and drill files

Once the board design is complete, Gerber and drill files will need to be created and sent to sebe-eng-pcb@deakin.edu.au.

Single sided boards will require 3 files:

  • Tracks (Gerber).
  • Board Outline (Gerber).
  • Holes (Drill).

2 sided boards will also require a second tracks Gerber file.
