Okay, I lied. After reviewing the pictures I had up, I saw a few things that didn’t sit well, so I re-did the layout one last time, ran my DRC, re-reviewed the layout. Now it’s been sent in for production! I was sweating bullets clicking the “submit files” button. I swear this has gotta be the scariest 100 bucks I’ve ever spent, and I have no idea why, lol.

Anywho, here’s the final layout, hopefully the drill holes work out and it everything passes the checks that the engineers at the fab house do.

Taking 1 step forward and 2 steps back tends to be the way I work, but so far…using that method 90% of the projects I’ve ever worked on have succeeded on the first try. I hope like hell this follows suit. I design this way because of something my professor always said, “If you’re a good engineer, it should work on the first try.” I try to follow that expression very closely, this project is no exception.
