They should be arriving any time now.

Same here. The order was shipped within 3 days. Almost a week since I ordered. Going to start a thread with pics when I get them in.

I have used http://dorkbotpdx.org/wiki/pcb_order for PCB orders. Only $5 per square inch includes shipping in the US. He runs boards about every 3 weeks or so and for the $5 you get 3 copies.

I will second http://dorkbotpdx.org/wiki/pcb_order when you only need a few copies.

I am waiting on an order from Seeedstudio placed on September 27. They shipped the boards October 7th. (Oct 1 - Oct 5 was a national holiday) Then shipping to the US takes about 10-30 days.

Both places have their purpose. Seeedstudio/iTeadstudio are useful when you need 10 or more boards. The dorkbotpdx group order is great for prototyping or when you need 3 boards or less. Laen who does the group order is very helpful and friendly. The boards come back looking great.

Itead is now selling my board:

http://iteadstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=19_21&products_id=281

I've taken the sparkfun mega shield and added two smd adapters SOIC and SSOP. And I connected most of the pins to separate vias

It still could be improved but it was my first eagle exercise. The 5v bus should be rerouted so the last few pins can be connected to vias.

So I can see my board before I even received it  smiley-grin

How are the boards cut and/or what are the shape contraints? Do they cut them to your dimension layer even if you have an irregular shape?

I've answered that question on a different post to you. It's cut per your board outline, like this:

The seeedstudio's service is as good as BatchPCB. Shipping took longer than I expected. They said Xmas orders (cheap toys I guess) were taking a lot of the production capacity at the fab house.

Yeah, thanks!

I guess I didn't realize the two services were so similar.
