DFM Tool – online PCM manufacturability and error check website @JLCPCB

JLCPCB has upped the capabilities in online circuit board design analysis and checking for manufacturability. With DFM Tool, you can upload Gerber files and have real time checking of the design, no waiting for manual checking half a world away.

Web-based, with nothing to download, enabling instantly comprehensive DFM analysis online anytime, anywhere. The interactive online viewer lets you inspect, pan, zoom, and navigate through all PCB layers in detail.

Use ready-to-go DFM rules or incorporate DFM rules provided by your preferred supplier to evaluate your project for compliance with actual factory capabilities.

Enable automatic analysis with just one click file upload, ensuring manufacturability for both fabrication and assembly.

Perform DFM and DFA checks with 5 comprehensive analysis modules covering traces, solder masks, drilling, silkscreen, and component assembly.

Utilize a 30+ point checklist to identify design errors, reported with visual localization to promptly resolve issues and prevent errors from moving to the next process step. Also Support one click PDF report download.

JLCPCB’s extensive component library offers a unique advantage, enabling instant matching of component information. Our self-built 3D component module library provides a visual representation of the component assembly effect.

Our unified user interface offers both 2D and 3D PCB visualizations, allowing you to check your PCB and components with realistic effects.
