Cool LFLab!

Warning: I drew the Erthenvar jacks and they are not tested for manufacturing. I would like to have used slots, but I use overlapping holes because that's what the "pcbgcode" ULP can handle and it works on my CNC router.


If I put a .04" x .125" 'rectangle' on the 'Dimension' layer in Eagle, will iTEAD mill it as a slot?

Don't know to be honest, I have tried some alternative (ie. non rectangular) board outlines, and I put a big hole to feed cables through on a mixer PCB, and that worked fine. I am not sure if this means they do plated slots as well as bigger cutouts/contours, and I also do not know just how small these cutouts can be.

I can confirm that iTead will mill this type of slot. Mine came back plated through and I think that is because it was on a pad. I drew the rectangle on layer 46 "Milling" of the package and I used their CAM job file "ITEAD_CAM_for eagle_7.x.cam". I zipped and uploaded all the files produced - not just the ones they mention.
