Jasmine Brackett Hello Everyone. Welcome to this week's Hack Chat! !!!
Shulie: Welcome!! We have tons of questions in our sheet already! https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ZHahHN4kU0YBjMgrZMU9ntrmdDD8JOUmpHX2mR6Ok0w/edit#gid=0
@Tindie here. It's great to be hosting this Hackchat with the help of @Shulie Tornel and the Hackaday team.
KiCad or otherwise. I usually do direct kicad uploads nowdays but I'd send Gerbers if needed for plated slots
Shulie: Hopefully we can get to every question. :)
This Hack Chat is part of a collaboration Hackaday & Tindie to bring content and events that encourage engineers and inventors to prototype and bring their ideas to market.
@Dan Sheadel and @Drew Fustini from @oshpark here today.
We're super pleased to have
Hi everyone! -Drew Fustini
Hi Drew !
@Jarrett OSHPark told me they couldn't do plated slots when I asked them. I did see that work around but it it felt a bit like a pain to me.
As @Shulie mentioned, there is a question sheet here
Once we've got through those and we have time there will be an open session.
@Shayna and @Yann Guidon / YGDES! -drew
made it just in time
Radomir Dopieralski that should be about tomorrow noon
I'm sure a lot of you, especially those in the US are familiar with OSH Park, but now I'm going to ask them to give a little intro about themselves.....
About us as people, or us as a company?
Shulie: Both? :)
wait, you're people?!!
a company that allows people to retain their identities?
We are all individuals! Just like everyone else!
RE: OSH Park, we're a community printed circuit board (PCB) service! We bring you high quality, lead free boards (ENIG finish), manufactured in the USA, and shipped for free to anywhere in the world.
Dare I say, Soylent green is people. :)
I'm Drew Fustini and have been with OSH Park for about a year and half now. I love
what about soylent purple?
we have a can of that actually!
It's incredibly strong industrial grape scent. We don't open it.
Laen (the founder and owner) saw a cool purple circuit board at Dorkbot PDX years ago
(the portland electronics meetup)
I heard a rumour that almost every purple PCB goes through your hands
and he decided it would be a nice color to use for their batch PCB service
No, no, That'd be Kelly!
Ah sorry, I was misinformed. How big is the team?
So, maybe a bit about where we're at. As drew's typing out, we started as a side project that grew out of Dorkbot a few years back.
About 4 years ago, was when Laen decided this was either "hire some folks or quit", and Kelly and I were the results of that. :)
So, up until about a year or so ago, she was depanelling about 95% of all our orders, and got to admire all of the pretty board art.
Very nice. And this is all in Portland?
So, if you ever think your cool PCB art feels like a waste, nope! We love it! We still snap photos of the amazing ones for our personal collections.
nice, i'll bet you've seen some great ones!
Dirty Engineer For all the pretty boards.. there has got to be some that you just cringe when you see.. terrible layout and non functional
We need to start putting "Hello, Kelly" in the PCB art work. :)
Yeah! All our shipping and handling is done in our office in Lake Oswego. We currently have 4 office workers: Kelly, Gabe, and Kim who do shipping and depanelling, and...Read more »
