Significant Upgrade to Our PCB Screen Interface: Enhancing Your Workflow

By Parker Dillmann  |  September 14, 2023

We are thrilled to announce a significant upgrade to our PCB screen interface, designed to improve your experience and streamline your workflow. This enhancement is part of our ongoing commitment to providing a user-friendly platform that meets your needs. Here's a detailed look at the new features and improvements.

Distinguishing Between Warnings and Errors

One of the key improvements is the separation of design checks into warnings and errors. By distinguishing between these two categories, we make it easier for you to prioritize and address issues more effectively. Critical errors are highlighted clearly, ensuring that they are fixed promptly, while warnings can be managed as needed without causing unnecessary delays. This separation allows you to focus your attention where it is most needed, improving the overall efficiency of your design process.

Simplified Quote Process

We have also simplified the process of initiating a quote. Previously, uploading your design files was a prerequisite for starting the quote process. Now, you can begin the quote process without needing to upload your design files upfront. This flexibility allows you to get pricing information early in your planning stages, helping you make informed decisions and keep your project on track. You can explore cost estimates and adjust your project scope accordingly, all without the initial commitment of uploading design files.

Enhanced User Experience

These improvements are designed with your convenience in mind. By making the interface clearer and more intuitive, we aim to save you time and reduce the complexity of managing your PCB designs. The new interface guides you through the design check process with clear distinctions between different types of issues, ensuring that you understand the status of your design at a glance. This user-friendly approach contributes to a more efficient and productive experience.

Streamlined Workflow

The combination of clear issue prioritization and a flexible quote process significantly streamlines your workflow. You can now address design issues more systematically and obtain necessary pricing information without unnecessary steps. This streamlined process reduces bottlenecks and helps keep your project on schedule. With fewer interruptions and a more straightforward approach, you can focus on what truly matters—bringing your designs to life.
