Re: MAC OS X

Mac users have been able to run either a dual boot with windows or a windows emulator such as Boot Camp which will allow windows to run in parallel with your macos.
PCB123 running on a mac is not supported, but you should be able to get it running with little or no trouble.

A very high percentage of orders are placed on hold due to insufficient board edge to copper clearance. We care about exposed copper at the board edge for a couple of reasons.

Why you should keep your layer count even.

When your design requirements add up to an odd number of layers, it almost always makes sense to add another layer.
