Help!
Eagle Routing Sizes and 3x6 Header Pins

Hi,

I have two problems which I'm hoping you cleaver people will able to help me with.

First what should the routing (thread) size be in eagle for a power distribution board with a 3/4s attached?

Second is there a 3x6 header pin in the eagle library or a downloadable one because i can't find one.

Thank you

1. If you're dealing with a lot of current, make the traces as big as possible. You can use the Draw function to create large rectangle areas where the copper is not removed, making them even larger.

2. Use three 1 x 6's instead. If the grid is set properly, they will snap into position and the board will be the same as if you used a single 3 x 6.

Also is the best bet to run power on one side and negative and signal on the other of the pcb

You can save yourself a lot of time and frustration by using the SparkFun Eagle library and rules/settings.
There's a lot of settings you'll probably never find, so just get the DRC rules file from sparkfun.
