    "Easier than Eagle/Gerber"

    March 30, 2013   |   By A011024

    Version: PCB Creator 2.0

    Pros

    A great way to get boards made quickly. My undergrad students had this app up and running in about ten minutes, and their project submitted the same day. They are already planning their next project. Great for .edu use, and Bay Area Circuits has tremendous customer service.

    Outside of class-- since the app is a free download, collaborating engineers on a project can for once all use the same version of board CAD, and final art is submitted as a single file. No more hunting for that missing gerber file, or mixing two different board versions' files.

    PCB Creator will import gerber files, if you already have a board done in another package but want to submit it via this convenient format.

    Once submitted, Bay Area Circuits will reply quickly with a complete DFM report including pdf "proof" art of the board design for your approval.

    Cons

    None that I encountered.

    Summary

    I tell my students that when it comes to implementing their designs, "The World is Your Printer", and the PCB Creator / Bay Area Circuits pipeline is a fine example. The engineer with a laptop computer can create something entirely new while sitting in a coffee house, and have the results in hand with unprecedented speed.
