LukeZ, I can’t imagine what kind of person you are.

I seriously recommend inspecting your back in the mirror.

I can assure you there are no such things on my back!  ;D

Reading all this with interest can I ask a question regarding prototyping boards.
Before you rush off and have them made would 3D printing one to view in your hands help? At least with your dimensions and holes + its relatively cheap?
Just an idea!

Cheers Snipah :-)

Interesting question, but in my experience the cost of bare PCBs is probably no more than the cost of 3D printed part, and I'm not sure if the file formats would be the same in any case. Of course if you have a 3D printer laying about already then you could try it!

It seems to me pointless to prototype using a 3D printer.

My main mistakes in designing my version of TСB are unnecessarily large openings for connectors, and more functionality could be added.

It is only my fault and inexperience as well as inattention when designing a printed circuit board.

Of course, there are still errors from the technical point of view of the wiring of the conductive tracks, but I do not have the education to understand what I did wrong.

Ordering the first 10 boards, at the first registration costs incredibly little, thanks to the discount of the PCB manufacturer.

There are many ways to get this discount more than once ^ _ ^

Well, I soldered.
I start tests and study the settings.

Good job! I see you used a metal stencil, hopefully it wasn't too expensive. I always get the thin plastic ones since I know I'll inevitably change the design. :)

Stencil cost 7 USD.

Not so much money, and there was a big discount for the first order.
In the future, I am going to assemble a homemade plotter to cut a stencil for myself for free.
I really liked how easy it is to make a printed circuit board for your project, without much difficulty.
