tips to setup & order for wide trace/space

Problem; you are trying to order a 3 oz copper board but the order form keeps telling you your trace/space is only 6mils.
This is not necessarily because you didn't route your board with big fat traces and sufficient spacing to keep from shorting, it is because your default setup has not bee updated to reflect your desired result.
In order to change this, you will need to do a couple of things.
First, select ...

Schematic wires

I am using PCB123 version 5.4.1 and have noticed that after deleting a wire connection in schematic it shows back up at random when redrawing/panning the first few times then it is gone. It's not a valid connection just not cleared fully from the drawing.

Also when placing the cursor over a wire line to delete it the first wire deletes fine. When deleting the next one the screen flashes I see the one I ...

New Release PCB123 V5.4

We have released a new version of PCB123 - Version 5.4.

Version 5.4 vastly expands users' options for manufacture by adding a direct order channel to Sunstone's PCBpro services. Users have always been able to order PCBpro manufacturing for PCB123, but doing so required placing the order outside the normal in-tool ordering process. Now, users can access PCBpro directly inside PCB123, giving them more options for lead times, quantities, board complexity, and manufacturing rigor.

The ...

Flexible BOM

The BOM function automatically lists all parts in a design, and calculates the board cost based on current prices by DIGIkey. This is fantastic, when the design and the components fixed to it is indeed the finished product.

However, when the attached component is, for example, a $0.10 IC socket, which will eventually hold a €15 microprocessor chip, the BOM becomes wildly inaccurate. The same is true when the used component does not have a ...

Rat-Line Optimization

PCB123 Technical Support recently worked an interesting customer issue we thought we'd share with PCB123 users.

One of the display speed options for PCB123 is the ability to turn off Rat-line optimization. By default, PCB123 does some compute-intensive work to display an otpimal (minimally confusing) rat-line. But doing so can sometimes slow down the screen rendering. So there's a user option to turn the Rat-line optimization off.

For this particular customer's design, they had turned ...
