Tutorial: Panelizing PCBs in Eagle

Introduction

Panelizing PCBs is often required when making a smaller PCB than the minimum size a fabrication house accepts. However, it is not straightforward for the hobbyist to do it without expensive software tools.

In the below example I am using Eagle 6.3.0 and a small design of mine, the Spindicator Clone.

I use Eagle to design my circuits - the free version is enough for most hobbyists and there is a wealth of information, tutorials on how to use several aspects of it.
