Default Easy PCB Software

Hi Folks,

I've been using ExpressPCB, but I want to be able to move away from using their services. I came across RIMU PCB, very similar and low cost.

I have been trying to contact them regarding a few questions I have.

Does anyone here use this software? Does anyone know if they are still in business, they haven't replied to my emails.

Can anyone recommend another VERY SIMPLE program, I hand route all my tracks so I don't need netlist, autorouter etc. Eagle is nice but the learning curve is too steep.

I want simple click on a pin, draw a track to the next pin etc.

Thanks

I had exactly the same need and highly recommend Sprint-Layout. No other software even comes close to how easy it is to use and make your own library. It is also very cheap.

Default Thanks for the tip

I download the demo and it seems very easy to use. Have you produced Gerber files from it and used CopperCam?

I made a gerber as a test when I first got it, as the main reason for me changing to Sprint-Layout from my ancient copy of Quickroute was I wanted to produce files that board houses could use. Not sure what CopperCam is. I have used Sprint-Layout to produce drill files and isolation milling files many times as my friend has a small milling machine.
