So I have several sheets of copper clad board and am going to drill and etch my own (done many this way for years) but not my own layouts (except for 4-5 small circuits that so far all worked as they should.
The layouts are from any strip board I find then I use DIYLC do the same layout then try to get rid of the jumpers/links and if I can shrink the board size
So my question to any one who does their own layouts is.... Example- 1 On line 2 there is a resistor a jumper then a capacitor so on line 2 there are 3 solder pads next to each other and connected.do I have to start my trace from between the cap and resistor like where the link's original hole is or ca I come off after the resistor and cap in other words resistor hole 1 link hole 2 cap hole 3 instead of hole 2 using hole 3 for new trace or would that change the circuit i dont want to do all that work and it be for nothing
i havent done bread boarding and not into all that R&D just like building working pedals
Electricity doesn't care about the exact order things are in so long as the leads connect to the same point.
I drew out what I think you were trying to ask. This connection of the three leads would be the same functionally in both examples.
Thank you very much. Whatever the answer was gonna be as long as I got an answer. thank you for spending the time (with examples which was exactly what I was asking) to read my question and take the time to answer it. People like you are why people like me can continue on in their quest Thanks again
