This is a brilliant use of the design tools already built into PCB software to locate accurately-spaced drill holes:
The reason for this post is to share a simple trick for accurately drilling holes in project front panels. Since the internal circuit for the troubleshooter pedal used a PCB of my design, I included a front panel drilling guide next to the main PC board in the design file that was sent to the board manufacturer.
