Laser cut SMT stencil service  is now available at Seeed Studio:

After using rapid-prototyping tools such as Arduino and Grove to finish your prototype, you must desire to DIY PCB and PCBA to make your designs more concise. To make PCB manufacturing easier and more affordable, we’ve provided 2-layer Fusion PCB Service & 4-layer Fusion PCB Service, which have been extremely welcome in the community. As we’ve promised to provide more services to the community, now we come up with Laser Cut SMT Stencil Service, making DIY PCBA easier for you.

    What I find weird is that they’re talking like they never had a 4-layer service before, when they did when they started. It’s nice that it’s back again.

    I’m still looking forward to a 2oz copper option. Unfortunately faking it with 4-layers isn’t an economically viable alternative.

    For anyone interested, I shared a DIY method for making metal stencils at home:

    Kinda odd that say the cheapest option would fit like twelve of their 10cm by 10cm boards, which if I had to actually do a dozen boards with a lot of SMT components, I’d consider paying for the stencil, but they don’t sell their boards panelized like that, and I don’t know how many hot plates would fit 30cm by 40cm.

    I wonder why they have no options for matching like 5cm by 5cm or 10cm by 10cm stencils. I wouldn’t expect them to be dramatically cheaper than the big ones they sell now, but if I had a batch of 10 boards with lots of components I’d pay an extra $20-30 for a matching stencil that could be used a board at a time.
