Notice. New forum software under development. It's going to miss a few functions and look a bit ugly for a while, but I'm working on it full time now as the old forum was too unstable. Couple days, all good. If you notice any issues, please contact me.

I recently put a small pcb project together and have had a company create the PCB gerber files for me.
From here i don't know what step is next to get the PCB built. I'm an electrician and i would be ordering more and more over time. This is a hobby at the moment so i need a prototype to try out and see if its viable. Do you do this or know of anyone that does?
it involves a 3G/4g GSM module, a battery back up ( I hope can be in built) and a sensor to detect power. I dont really know how the process works.
Thanks! Phil

Hi Phil,

I use Shenzhen2U.com

Its $9.90US for PCBs upto 10cm x 10cm and you get 10 panels of each.

Cheapa$$ postage to AUS is typically around $11US so it works out about $30Aus all up..

Expect about 1 month delivery though altough I have had 12 days and also about 6 weeks..

You can pay extra for expedited manufacture and delivery but that is up to you.

Kind Regards,
