Hey there. I've started building the 3x3x3 led cube but was wondering... where did you get your pcb board? Do you have schematics for it? This is the last part of the project and I really want to get it finished:D. Thanks.

The PCB were ordered from http://www.batchpcb.com/.Here is the schematic. I just ordered 5 more PCB and should have them within a month. I will sell just the PCB if you want.

I am interested in buying the PCB, but some questions: how much?, where can you ship it to?, and what payment method do you accept?
thanks for the schematic by the way

if you cant ship it to europe -> romania(that's where i'm from), could you please send me the gerber files needed to order the pcb from batchpcb.com ? i dont really know how to order from them.... maybe you could help me. I know it's a bit much to ask, i hope you don't mind.

The PCB alone is around $25+shipping. I can ship to Romania.

I accept Paypal.

BatchPCB is great for small orders. I only ordered 5 of these boards because I want to see how they will sell. If they sell I will order from a larger company. Set up fees are usually $100+ so in large orders paying $3 per board and a $100 set up is better then paying $13 per board and $10 set up.

To order from BatchPCB you first make a design in eagle. Then you download some files from BatchPCB and follow their Eagle tutorial. That takes the Eagle file and generates the correct gerber files. Place those in a zip and send it to them. They give you a price, and then you order them.

Eagle takes a while to learn, but it is a great tool.

Thanks,
Justin
