I have been wanting to create my own PCBs for years. I tried many times to do this by etching my own, but with anything more complex than simple circuits, it requires a minimum of a two sided board. This requires a lot of work and planning to etch, which for me was not in the cards.
I spent the last 4 months watching tutorial videos on Youtube from a variety of people. There appears to be much outdated info on the subject, which made it really hard to learn. Even the Autodesk official pages were full of old info that no longer applies to new versions. It’s been a frustrating process, but I persevered and now can create my own schematics in little time, arrange parts on the board view and then send off to have the PCBs made for around $5! Here’s a circuit taken directly from the Forrest Mims Op Amps cookbook for a summing amplifier. I turned this into a working schematic in about 15 minutes.
