I was not being rude to Alex.
I never mentioned Alex nor the fact he volunteered to take on a redesign of the PCB layout.

I was referring to all you i****s that were asking a for a redesign when OST has already designed the PCB layout for us.

Hi,

Just my opinion as I like OS creations.

OS layout as it developed turned out to be a good one, much better than the 'schematic style' PCB's that's so common. I like OS layout as current loop areas are outside of small signal areas etc. Of course it could be even better but that would probably mean more layers and that may not be desirable.

I think the best way to honor OS is to make a PCB in a style OS had in mind.

AndrewT, You should calm down. Please stop insulting people.

You made some statements which may not be correct. Yes it was planned for ostripper to be gone for a while, but he returned, we exchange some posts and e-mails, he did an update, but then he disappeared again, and won't answer e-mails PM's or posts. While we are concerned that he is having problems of some sort, we can't wait forever, and it is looking like forever at this point.

Also, the suggestion was that Alex recreate the ostripper schematic, NOT redesign it, so you are incorrect there too. And Alex, we appreciate your offer, which wasn't in fact even your idea!

However, it is a step backwards to redo something that we have built an etched prototype for using ostripper boards, and has been proven to work, We'll review the files one more time to made sure the mounting holes are wrong. If they are we will then we'll decide whether to order anyway or not. To most people , the incorrect mounting holes is not a big deal, but we we're hoping the create this standard,, as in the long run, it will be VERY helpful, if all orr boards adhere to it..

It would be useful if someone know how to edit a Gerber file, if that's possible (we think it isn't but there are lots of clever people and programs out there.. )

I second using OS's own PCB layout. Can someone make a post with all the relevant images/files up to this point?

Ehhm, I did a quick browse, but I can't find any gerber files in any of the .zips in this thread. If anyone has them please PM me.

If no gerber files surface I'll have to redraw the whole thing from scratch. Don't worry though I will follow OS's design as faithfully as I can. My component library only have round pads so polygon ones might take a while since I have to change them by hand. Won't be too hard given how altium is pure awesome, but I'll start with round/oval ones.

And in case you're wondering, I have plenty of layout experience so hopefully I won't disappoint you. I'll start tomorrow if no gerber files show up in the meantime.
