Board dimension issue on OSHPark
I draw a board in Eagle. Everything seems ok but when uploading gerber files to OSHPark, the board top and bottom sizes are not correct:
All other layers sizes are correct:
I verify lot of things and the board is correctly defined on layer 20 (Dimension).
This is the board if you want to check :
0_1462540785593_Office plant monitor v1.0.brd
it's often a problem of centering the left bottom corner of your board on the origin point in Eagle. I have just looked for this problem and updateed your file, you will see.
Always check this or everything will be offset then during process. I never put things < 0;0 Then you're more sure to have less problem during their process and machine alignment if you start from 0;0
You can use smaller trace for dimension.
Thanks @scalz !!
But it's the same thing with your modification. Another idea ?
@carlierd ok lol I know what's wrong. I forgot you said that's gerbers files. If you upload your .brd directly that should be ok. try it
if you want to use gerbers, you need to download the CAM job files from the fabhouse you are using.
Herea screenshots if you use .brd at oshpark
If you want to generate and use gerbers, you have to download the CAM files. And I suggest to download dru (drc files) too. Put them in respective eagle directory. then use them.
- dru/drc for checking the oshpark design rules on your board. Some drc rules can be ignored but others are mandatory.
- when you want to generate gerbers, use their CAM/JOB files.
So easy ! I finally used directly BRD file and not GERBER.
Thanks for the advice on DRU.
The strange thing is that I tried with CAM job of OSH Park but the result was the same. But it's working with BRD so let's order my first board
