Hi folks,

I've spent a little time putting together a tutorial for producing an Arduino Shield PCB from start to finish. I'm hoping it'll be a useful resource for people wanting to extend their Arduino's

The tutorial can be found here: http://aaroneiche.com/2010/06/24/a-beginners-guide-to-making-an-arduino-shield-pcb/

thanks.

I was just thinking about making my own shield the other day.  now I know how  smiley  plus $5/square inch for three copies doesn't seem to bad.

FYI....the link to your PCB rules under "things you will need" is broken, although I did find them from the other monthly pcb order links

Thanks, that's a very detailed tutorial and therefore really helpful.

I'd just like to point beginners to the alternative of using Fritzing. It's really made for quickly creating Arduino shields, if your demands are not too advanced. There's a tutorial at http://fritzing.org/learning/tutorials/designing-pcb/.

Cool tutorial.

Here is an Arduino shield template I created for my own projects

I've done something similar for the Pulsonix software I use. I imported the Arduino Eagle Duemilanove files into Pulsonix, extracted the board outline, connector positions and mounting hole positions, and saved them as a PCB profile file. It only took a couple of minutes:
