DorkbotPDX PCB Service is Now OSH Park

The very awesome Dorkbot PCB service, run by the amazing Laen, now has a new ordering system, OSH Park.

This is a community printed circuit board (PCB) order. We take designs from lots of people, put them all together on a panel and then order the panel from a fab.
Since we’re all splitting the panel setup cost, this lets us make circuit boards inexpensively.

This service grew out of the DorkbotPDX PCB Order run by by @laen and now comprises of a two-layer panel every other day, a four-layer panel every three weeks and a periodic two-layer medium run service for people needing more than 150 square inches of board.

This was the PCB service I used to prototype the Coobro Geo, and I have always had a great experience with other PCB orders.  Hopefully this new system will help Laen keep up with the ever growing OSHW community!

  1. I just submitted my first board to OSHPark yesterday, got the email that it’s on its way to fabrication today.

    The upload process worked really well and it was nice to see renderings of what the finished board is expected to look like.

    Cheers!

  2. What are their prices like for an arduino shield sized board (2.7 x 2.1″)?

  3. @AndrewK – 2.7×2.1 = 5.67. 5.67x$5 per sq. in. = $28.35.

    Should cost about $28 for 3 Arduino sized boards.
