So what do you use?

It's about knowing the tools and how to use it. It's pretty easy to use, free and a lot of people using it. What's wrong with it? I used to use Protel, Auto Track, then Express PCB, but now I'm settled with Eagle .

Look at this and see this man writing scripts that reads the Intel first CPU schematic in bitmap and make an Ealge schematic for it. http://insanity4004.blogspot.com/201...chematics.html. He builds the Intel 4004 CPU out of discreet FETs using it.

I heard back from my PCB maker, the Gerber files are fine- the drills file is EvvGC v1.2.TXT There is one thing we need to chenage- the drills file is currently in 2:3 format, but they require it to be 2:4.

You can see where to set it in this NC Drill Setup dialog: http://wiki.altium.com/display/ADOH/...Output+Options

Could you do one more export that way for us?

Hi Tom
I made all possible combinations, six files total(inch 2:3, 2:4, 2:5, and mm 4:2, 4:3, 4:4)
Hope it helps.

Subscribing, looks like a very promising 3-axis setup. Look forward to seeing someone offer these for sale.

Hello evvaldis,

is it possible to get a complete list of parts for assembly?

Thanks in advance. You make a great job to realize the first 3 axis controller for everyone....

Good news, controller got its own GUI
I made just few tests, but it looks like GUI works correctly.



p.s.I will post parts list later.

Nice GUI. I like the drag`n`drop style of the blue arrows .

Thanks for posting the drills files- the English 2:4 one was the one I needed.
I ordered some boards and will post here when they are done, in case others want some.

Now we need a list of the required components.

I have ordered PCB's from iteadstudio, but this may take a while
Would be nice to find faster service...

OSH Park ships world wide, not sure what the turnaround time will be. Here's the v1.2 gerbers that are compatible with their system.

I have ordered 3.......thank you....


@evvaldis: the part list is a little bit difficult to order, maybe is it possible to generate a shopping cart at farnell.com?

Anything else? Do you want your food on a plate and chewed and placed into your mouth? Be happy the information is provided at all, make your own shopping cart at farnell and post it here.

Or just buy a *** ******* if you want instant gratification.
