Hi there,

are the PCB designs on the yusynth website scaled? Do they need adjusting to make the ic sockets fit the holes?

thanks

The PCB files (either JPG or PDF) are 300dpi files. This means that they are directly printable with no need for scaling. If you are a Windows user, just make sure that your printer driver is not set for automatic scaling. Make sure that the driver uses 100% or 1:1 for printing.

Nice one, thanks Yves!

Im going to get them printed onto acetate tomorrow. I really love the fact that you give out PCB design's. As I really enjoy etching my own.

thanks again!

I checked the link and it is not broken, may be the server was too busy when you tried.

By the way there was a hidden problem with the VCA-PCB file (some weirdness in the HTML code that was puzzling some Web browsers) , that was the reason why you could not download it. It is fixed now.

I understand your excitment ! Have fun with soldering now Wink
