Something you need to know, if your design is a panel.
First! Check the service you placed is small batch order or prototyping service, cause the rules for them are different.
1, For Small Batch Service-----Panelized Design
If each piece in your panelized PCB is the same(like the following example), we can apply
V-CUT for your board without extra fee. And please make sure your panel meet the following requirement for V-cut.
a)The size of your panel shall be large than 7*7CM, each sub- board shall be large than 1*1cm.
b) put the v-cut line in outline/dimension layer (GKO/GML). In Eagel, put in layer 46&50.
If each piece in your panel is not the same, for example, it contains two different designs, then you shall choose “2”.
One More Thing, the quantity of your different designs in panel shall be the same. otherwise we can not make sure v-cut can be applied to your panel. V-cut will go though the panel and can not stop int the middle, so please well design your panel.
2 For Prototyping Service----- Panelized Design
You can penalize different or same boards in your panel, but fee v-cut is not included in prototyping service. We will not v-cut or divide the board for you. Which means we will make the board as a big panel according to your outer outline.
If your design requires v-cut or dividing, it will cost you extra fee, please contact us.
Want a big panel without v-cut, please make sure:
a) Make sure there is a big outline for your panel, you can design this big outline in your keep-out layer, and if you want some individual outlines for your small boards, that is OK, please put these outlines into your silk screen layer.
More Tips, this prototyping service of us is for one simple and unique design. If my dear you use drills, slots, separate outlines to divide your board (like the condition below), it may cost you extra fee for it.
(The panel contains 2 sub-boards for instance,)
(Note: For 1-5, if the connection is small than 1/3 dimension of your panel, it will cost you extra fee, vice versa. And 2 sub-boards = 2 design, no matter the sub-boards are the same or different)
