Default A board layout design contest in Eagle.

RJM Audio - Pimp My Board Contest

Lot's of talent here at diyaudio, but in many ways it's diffuse: everyone works on their own things. I thought it would be a cool idea if the diyaudio community could get together on a single task, it would be neat to see what different board designs people came up with for a common circuit.

If you like messing around in Eagle, or what to start to learn, here's your chance to show off what you can do!

Why just Eagle (I threw mine out with the Apple II+. you had to wire all in Basic and play connect the dots). As long as you can produce a Gerber file, it should not matter! E

@mickeymoose

Eagle is free and cross-platform, and widely used here at diyaudio. At least that was my impression.

My concern with just getting the Gerber files back is I have no recourse to make any changes or tweaks later if I want to modify the circuit. I can view Gerber files, but I cannot edit them.

If you want to suggest a compromise, I'm open to ideas-

@mark

Yes, I know, it's basic, but I wanted something that wasn't going to intimidate beginners.

For little (relative term, I realize) the GCPrevue plus is available. It allows you to manipulate and edit Gerber data. E

Modyfying gerbers to change a layout is not realy reccomended, best to change a layout and re-create the manufacturing information.
For a simple circuit such as this Eagle is adequate, and it would be interesting to see the different takes on the layout.
