JLCPCB has assured me that they will fix any such issues…though I try not to trust them too much ;-). They twice rejected an order due to “a missing drill file”, even though the board did not have a single drill hole in it. (The first time, they canceled the order and issued a refund with a note saying why. Second time they put the order on hold and sent me an email asking for clarification.) So far, I have been very happy with their service, whether customer or otherwise.
I don’t know what’s wrong, but thus far for me, KiCAD POS files have the following rotation errors (from JLCPCB’s perspective):
- SSOP-28: rotated -90 (probably all SSOP)
- HTSOP-8-1EP: don’t recall what, but probably -90.
- SOIC-14: ditto (probably all SOIC)
- SOT-23: rotated 180 (good luck catching THAT with a SOT-23-6)
For whatever reason, SOT-363 (SC-70-6) is correctly oriented. I don’t know where this problem is, whether it’s JLCPCB or KiCAD being inconsistent.
EDIT: Responded before checking the link in the above post…that explains it very concisely. Cheers, so much for standards…
