OSH Park adds board sharing feature

osh-park-board-sharing

OSH Park continues to get better and better. We think the recent addition of Project Sharing is a huge feature! Obviously this lets you order up the open source goodness posted by others with a minimum amount of effort. But to us there are a couple of other things that make this valuable.

First off, the ability to browse through the projects can be a huge inspiration for your own work. Secondly, the board files themselves are available for download, and it looks like you can post links to your repository if you so choose when sharing your project. This makes OSH Park something of a Thingiverse for PCBs. Browse through what’s offered then download the files to etch yourself or just to use as reference to see how others do things when laying out the traces. And of course the rock bottom prices offered make this a no-brainer for shared breakout board designs.

The Twitter post calls this the “early stages” of the feature. We can’t wait to see what they come up with as it matures.
