Dan shares lessons learned from his first venture into designing 3D circuits:
- Avoid having structural components carry signals
- Castellations work, but mind the placement.
- If at all possible, make each component easily testable and self contained
- Don’t try to dual-purpose a component lead as a signal wire.
- Watch your line termination
- Put all connected parts on the same design
- Hobby Iron vs Soldering Iron: Not the same.
- Make a jig, or at least a good assembly guide
