MottramLabs along with consultancy work design I manufacture a range of circuit boards for both professional and hobbyists alike. They were all designed to solve a need I had with my own projects. I could not find these boards for sale online so I designed my own. I figured that others would also find them useful, so I decided to sell them.
Software used I use mostly open source software and for many reasons. Cost is a big reason, proprietary CAD software is very expensive and requires an ongoing financial commitment, I’ve been there and it’s very expensive. Other reasons include the quality of the open source software can often be exceptionally good, probably because it’s developed by people that use it themselves. It’s always a good idea to support these projects anyway you can, even buying a coffee mug helps.
