AutoTRAX

Free, no limits (non-commercial) PCB design with DEX

I've just changed the software license for AutoTRAX DEX. By default it is free with absolutely no limits except it must be used for non-commercial use. There are no time, board size, pin count, layer count limits. If you want to use it for commercial project  then it costs only $49.

Latest version comes with complete Arduino Uno demo.

The website had changed to http://DexPCB.com

I have added vastly improved 3D including real-time shadows, reflections and texture maps.







I would love to hear from you guys.

I have been using Eagle for some years because there are many tutorials, libraries what I can quickly search on the internet. However, it honestly is not an easy to use or comfortable to me and not an advanced software as my point of view. It takes me quite long time to finish a pcb.

Welcome and appreciate with all your review and sharing.

Besides the EAGLE freeware, there is a educational license you can use with an valid edu-e-mai address. It has the same features as the Maker licence (https://cadsoft.io/pricing/).

I've used EasyEDA since last year and have been impressed by their service.
EasyEDA provides a free web based PCB design tool for anyone involved in electronics design and able to share the work with others. The tool allows you to import an old design from several other circuit maker tools, it has the ability to export the designs and simulation results in .PNG or .SVG formats, and can be a host for your partners and colleagues if they want to work on your projects.

They also can generate the Gerbers (which are free to download and can be used with any PCB fab house: there's no tie to EasyEDA). From within EasyEDA, the Gerbers can be submitted straight to EasyEDA for fab. It is equally possible to submit 3rd party Gerbers to EasyEDA for fab.

There are lots of examples on the site and a useful tutorial.

I'm assuming you're a sales guy for EasyEDA?

I attempted to use it and found it to be utter garbage.

I taught myself EAGLE a few years ago, and after I figured out the basic functionality, haven't needed to look anywhere else. Granted, I stick with through-hole 2-sided, but it does that very well. I find making new parts, even esoteric ones to be relatively simple.

If I care about a 3-D model of the board, I just build it in CATIA.

I started to learn Kicad, it look powerful so far

I followed the link and when I go to download it says that it isn't the full version.

"It is the full version but without plottings and Gerber output until you enter a valid software key, which you need to purchase."

The EAGLES's PCB Designing Apllication from Autodesk is a good one I think. However, there are so many drawbacks if compared to the premium version. You can try the free version, you don't need to upgrade if the free version meets your product designing needs.
