My Seeed Idea

Share. Vote. Discuss. See.

Share your ideas, tell us what you think of other people’s ideas and join the discussion.
Idea Guidelines:
1 – Idea needs to be something we can do. This means, although we appreciate general feedback (for example, “this is good!” or “this hurts!”), here we are looking for ideas we can work on.
2 – Specific. The more details you can provide, the better. Heck—you can attach files to ideas or a reference link to show us what you want!

  1. KiCad gerber instructions give bad drill hole placement.

    When I follow the Knowledge Base instructions http://support.seeedstudio.com/knowledgebase/articles/1824574-how-to-generate-gerber-and-drill-files-from-kicad

    ...the Seeed Gerber Viewer puts all the drills near the origin. I can fix it by changing KiCad's Generate Drill Files option -- Drill Units: Inches.

            • 35 micronsof copper on inner layers

              I propose and I would wish the option to get 35 microns (1 oz) of copper on the inner layers. A modest extra fee will be OK.

              • You are a terrible teacher. A first time customer has no idea how to start. Why do you make it so hard?

                Your fist page should show EXACTLY what we need to make things go. So far, I still don't know how this works. The manual for my Grove device says I ned a Seeeduino board with driver board, but you don't sell those?

                  • BOM Alternate Purchase Links

                    Idea: SEEED should list Mainland China based "BOM - Alternative Purchase Links" Vendors like ARROW, Digi-Key, etc so PCB clients can find alternative purchase links when a BOM is not accepted because some components not being available in the SEEED inventory.
                    This is assuming that the SEEED PCB manufacturers are located in major Chinese cities where the alternate vendors may have component stocks.

                      • Gerber viewer feedback

                        There are many users who have problems and uncertainties with loading gerber files.
                        Viewer could give some feedback to user. For example - did it load the files correctly or something similar, because when it doesn't show some primitives, user doesn't know is it because of bad files or gerber viewer is made that way.
                        As example - I am not sure about board cutout - will the PCB be cut or not. Also I am not sure about the holes.

                              • Custom shape FR-4 plates for prototyping

                                Custom shape FR-4 boards for prototyping without copper.
                                I would like to order a PCB without any copper in FR-4 material to be used for functional support parts for a prototype we are working on. It is a strong material (better than laser cut acrylics or wood) and you probably already have the machines / partners to deliver. Should be easy to add function for you guys.

                                    • Better Delivery Dates!!! It's been two weeks and still nothing and no status changes.

                                      Speed up the delivery times. 13 days in the "Processing" status, is a little ridiculous with no updated status or Estimated Delivery Date. No information at all.

                                      What is going on with my order? Is there a problem? Should it take 13 days in "processing"?

                                      Thanks,
                                      Larry

                                      • What shall I name my top paste file for the mask?

                                        How about supporting CADSTAR files?

                                        • Order specific communications

                                          Add a "communications" feature in a order item that would enable sending and receiving messages that are directly linked to a specific order. In my case I wanted to send a message with some details about the PCB but it was difficult to find a way to send a message at all.
