Today i’ve spent some more time playing around with Eagle and this link, seeing how hard it was to design a custom Arduino Shield PCB for the fermentation controller.
Well, admittedly, I don’t really know what i’m doing, but it’s been fairly easy following the guide and building a PCB. It lacks a bit at the end though when it comes to exporting Gerber files (which is what a PCB manufacturer expects) so I’m kind of stuck for now; but i’ll do some more research later and find out what I need to do.
There are a number of relatively inexpensive manufacturers of custom PCB’s around on the net, so I’m thinking of ordering some just to see how they come out. Might even use one 🙂
