The 4th CAD2CAM4PCB seminar was held yesterday in our German factory. Over 4 seminars, we welcomed 50 customers from Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Greece!
The day started with an introduction round where customers learn to know each other and shared their CAD software preferences.
The purpose of the day was to create an interactive session between attendees where anyone could ask questions at any time.
The PCB production process was then explained in a 1,5 hour presentation including sleeves, pictures and videos showing each step.
After a coffee break we continued the day with a 1 hour factory tour to experience what our visitors just learned in the previous presentation.
Lunch was served to fill the inner self and we continued the day with the optimum PCB design flow from CAD to Gerber to PCB Visualizer to CAM. This 1 hour presentation handled data formats, industry standards and created output tips to configure your DRC settings in your CAD system.
Coffee or tea was served and we finished the day with our last 1,5 hour presentation explaining PCB Visualizer, PCB Configurator, PCB Checker and all editor tools.
A more detailed explanation on the day program can be found here.
We noticed that many of the attendees were not aware of the many productions steps and checks involved in PCB production. Most were pleasantly surprised and grew conscious about the influence their designs can have on the production and the consequences thereof. The next grand discovery was PCB Visualizer and its functionality together with the many other online freeware tools we explained. This left our customers with an overall very positive impression.
Here are some customer feedbacks:
I learned a HUGE amount of things on PCB manufacturing. It was well worth every second of the somewhat long trip to get to Baesweiler, Germany. My gratitude goes also to the members of the Staff who took of their valuable time to accompany us during the whole seminar. Greetings, David
It was good to receive an overview of all the editor tools in the PCB visualizer. I can use more options now, of which I didn’t realize they were in the PCB visualizer because I usually don’t have the time to search it out myself when ordering. A very useful day indeed. Greetings, Chris
I learned today that I design my files the old way which apparently has no sense anymore nowadays. The seminar explained clearly the do’s and don’ts regarding files design and output possibilities. Great update and looking forward to continue working with Eurocircuits! Greetings, Dirk
