How Should I Submit My Design?
We know the excitement of completing a design and we want to do our best to help you get your hand on your PCBs. The following are some simple prepwork that will help make the process smoother.
As an electrical engineer, it is important to make sure your PCB Design fits the requirements as well as the design rules set out by the manufacturer. Gerber Labs currently offers affordable prototyping services for 2-layer and 4-layer rigid boards, and the design rules are posted in our documentation for reference. In the document, you will see our design rules for all the basic board features, soldermask and silkscreen specifications, and our drill capability.
While the different Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software on the market offers a variety of ways for users to design their PCBs, the design files from one software are usually not compatible with another. This is why the community agreed upon a format used for sharing their designs: The Gerber format.
Gerber format is a universally accepted file format for PCB designs and you can follow our documentation for instructions on how to export your design for manufacturing. In the File Extension Convention section, you will see the acceptable files at the moment. The list will be updated from time to time as we make improvements to our system to accept a broader range of files.
