Hello!

I've seen and am in posession of some very high quality PC Boards like the WSG and the SNVoice projects.
I would like to have some made for a certain project... who manufactures these high quality PC Boards?

Thanks!

TRON

Hello!

I contacted them an they need me to draw the circuit schematic using Express SCH.

They say the software is easy to use but I don't think so.

Is there anybody out there who masters this software?

Thanks!

Yes, and after that you'll have to design your PCB using their software as well. It's not going to be much easier than this I think ...

Hello!

Well then this is going to take forever... I don't know what's worse... to try to stripboard the circuit or to draw this schematic again using their software... and then create te PC Board using their other software... only to find out in the end that the 4 PC Boards are going to be too expensive... shucks!

If only my version of LochMaster could save what I've done I'd stripboard the circuit...

...i think you will find that the end product will not be very expensive at all...it won't be a waste of time.

Hello!

I really don't know at this point if I should continue with this as a hobby or return to Formula 1 racing Shocked
