Let’s be frank: We’ve made a lot of mistakes over the years. In the ongoing pursuit of better-designed PCBs, we’ve dealt with tons of screw-ups, from boards with ill-arranged traces to boards with…no traces at all, actually, and a host of others. Fortunately, by now we feel like we’ve gotten a pretty solid handle on a largely-error-free design for manufacturing process, and we want to help you avoid some of our past mistakes.
We primarily use EAGLE to design our boards, and we’ve amassed a catalog of over 500 open source design files, as well as guides, tutorials, tips and tricks to help you through every step of the PCB design process. Check out our video below for an intro to the resources available, and visit our special EAGLE page for all the good stuff. Happy building!

Eagle PWB Design With Matt Berggren
Eagle is a household reputable name for all of the Hackaday regulars. And here is your opportunity to research imminent features, have your ‘how do I do this in Eagle?’ questions addressed, and have your wishlist items heard. Join us on Friday at 12:00 PST for a live Hack Chat regarding the Eagle PWB Design software.
Hosting this week’s dialogue is Matt Berggren, best known on Hackaday.io as technolomaniac. Matt is the Director of Autodesk Circuits and with Autodesk’s buying of Eagle last summer, the well-known schematic design and PWB layout software falls under his acumen. He has got an in depth historical past in designing printed circuit boards -if you’re able to do it in EDA software program he is sure of how -this really is a really good chance to get clarified the questions which have been stumping you.
Please don’t pass-up the Hack Chat! And here is a very useful web-based tool to aid transform 1/13/17 at 12:00 PST to your local time.
Here is The best way to Get Involved:

You don’t need to expect Friday, join Hack Chat at any time when you like and watch what the community is presently preaching about.
Join Us Next Week As well for KiCad!
Are you a greater portion of a KiCad guy than an Eagle guy? It’s best to still check out this week to find out if Matt changes your mind. But filter your work schedule next week when Wayne Stambaugh, among the list of lead developers of KiCad will arise for a Hack Chat on Friday, 1/20/17.
