We had a weekend hack-a-thon and came up with a submission portal and work for for cheap PCBs using the Dirt Cheap Dirty PCBs joke mentioned a few posts back.
I don't intend to jump into the cheap PCB game, there's not really any money in it and Seeed already does it, but this was a fun weekend hack project. The code will be recycled for an upcoming engineering project we're working on so you'll probably see it again soon.
Its also design challenge to eliminate all the things we hate about online stores and ordering PCBs today:
*Single page order. Upload PCBs and then make payment, that's it
*No login to remember. If you set a password now, you can auto load details next time, but there's no login, reset password, any of that crap
*Check order status without login, just click a link
*Constant, clear order progress updates (with SMS gateway too! but we're not paying for it yet...)
*Shipping options (not enabled) to price cheap (Hong Kong/Singapore post ~ $5) or fast (DHL/Fedex/UPS ~$20) shipping at actual cost based on board size
I would appreciate it if a few forum regulars wanted to give it a try, just to see how you like it and how the system works. Prices are:
$12 5x5cm, any color, 10 copies, 100% etest, includes world wide shipping
$24 10x10cm, any color, 10 copies, 100% etest, includes world wide shipping
Tolerances, shipping stuff, etc can be found on the about page:http://dirtypcbs.com/about.php
If it goes to hell I'll happily refund your money, just looking for some feedback and extra live testing on the code.
