Today we’re preparing a PC board panel for SMT assembly at JLCPCB. We’ll use the ThisIsNotRocketScience Gerber Tools to panelize the actual PC board, but panelizing the BOM and pick-and-place files is more complicated. I couldn’t find any free software to handle this part of the project, so I wrote my own and made it available on GitHub.
