    DIGWDF Gerber and DipTrace Design Files are now available for downloading. Here's what you need to know:

    ** There is a small charge for each file (Gerbers: $1, DipTrace: $2.50)

    ** The Gerber files are packed inside a ZIP archive file, which can be uploaded to most any board production house.

    ** The DipTrace design files require the installation of DipTrace PCB software, which is a free download from diptrace.com

    ** Where are the files? In the DIGWDF Store. Yes, the store is closed, but all the downloadable files are available, including our documentation and firmware listings. Make sure the email address listed in your store account is correct. After purchasing one or more files, the store will send an email with links to download the files you've chosen.

    ** If you want to view the Gerber files and/or print them out, we suggest the free gerbv tool (https://sourceforge.net/projects/gerbv/) Once printed, you can measure them as sometimes the dimensions are necessary when you order PCBs.

    Questions/Answers
    1. Are these the actual DIGWDF files? Yes.

    2. Can I make modifications to them? Yes, and if you do, you must remove any references to DIGWDF from the silkscreen layers.

    3. Can I sell PCBs that I've had made? Yes, but DIGWDF cannot and will not support them. If you intend to sell them, you should download the DipTrace design files and remove any references to DIGWDF from the silkscreen layers and make your own Gerbers.

    4. Can I post them on Oshpark or Tindie? Not the original DIGWDF files, no. But you can certainly modify the files, remove all references to DIGWDF and make them your own designs, and then do whatever you like with them at that point.

    5. Can I copy the documentation files, too? If you modify the PCB in any way, no; you must write your own documentation for your version of the PCB, unless our original documentation specifies otherwise.

    6. Can you help me make PCB modifications? No, sorry, but we'll be glad to answer questions you may have.

    7. What if I can't get the email to download the files? Sorry, we can't help you with your email problems. Make sure digwdf.com and digwdf.org are allowed sources and are not blocked by your anti-spam software.

    8. What if I delete the email with the download links? Don't do that until after you have downloaded the files.

    Default This is it....

    Fire sale pricing -- we're in the final stages of really clearing out the DIGWDF store and before we toss everything into the recycling bin, we thought we'd make some packages available, price them to recover shipping/handling and hopefully get these into the hands of folks that can use them. We'll hang onto these things until about March 1st and whatever's left goes in the recycling dumpster. Because the store still has its links to PayPal and whatever, we've opened only a new "Packages" area...

    Here'a link to the first post of the thread that describes them: https://diychristmas.org/vb1/showthr...l=1#post104510

    Here's the link to the list of packages in the store: http://digwdf.com/store/category.php?id_category=37

    Default How to order PCBs from a Manufacturer

    There have been a few comments about using Gerber files downloaded from the DIGWDF Store, such as, "I downloaded it but I don't know what to do with it."

    Here's information that will help:

    Is there a list, on this site, that provides a list of PCB manfacturers that are preferred by users here on this forum?

    I don't recall seeing one, but there have been periodic informal surveys made. But there are so many board manufacturers it's senseless to try to compile a list. Google is your friend. Search for PCB Manufacturing and you'll be amazed....

    We've had some requests from folks for a download package of all the Gerber files together, and that's now available, too. We also added a similar download for all the DipTrace design files.

    Savings galore!! Only $69.95 for all our Gerbers and $115 for all the DipTrace source design files!

    These packages will be available for a limited time -- probably through the summer only...

    I bought the Gerbers and Design files for the ESP-RS485 Adapter (what an incredibly useful little board!).

    When I tried to send the gerbers to a fab house, the fab house rejected it because the board outline was not a rectangle. I was able to view the outline and it included the outline for the ESP-01 which hangs over the side.

    I have used drawing software like Visio a lot and lightweight CAD software a little. I am not a circuit designer but I was able to use a free version of (I think it was) DipTrace to remove the ESP-01. I had to drop in a replacement header component and connect traces and then find some instructions about how to configure DipTrace to output "fab house compatible" Gerbers. It worked.

    I'm so proud.
