A superb, yet simple-to-use app that (in my view) blows away anything I've used before on Mac or Windoze platforms, and it's fairly small documentation and physical size disguises Osmond's real power and capability. I agree that Mr. Chavez is very responsive to suggestions and feedback etc.. So much so in fact that I feel guilty about pestering him again to ask why - after some months - the file icons reverted to 'generic' when all other app icons are unaffected (probably something I did anyway...) HIGHLY recommended!

I have successfully used this app since non-commercial beta version. It is excellent! Without bells and whistles it does its work very well. Every new release is better, remaining quick and compact. It does not need an installer - it works out of the box. You have to pay for this app only once - all upgrades are free of charge! I totally agree with pacman's review. If you need a good PCB layout program for a Mac do not hesitate - buy this one.

I seem not to be able to connect to osmondpcb's web site, getting a "server not answering" error. However, since 60 people have been successfully downloading the new version by now - is there an alternative download link, a secret time window, some magic spell someone could feel urged to share here ? ;)))

Everything's working now - just needed to switch to another ethernet port on my ADSL modem, so obvious ;))) Enjoying version 1.1.22 now!

Definitely the best PCB layout program for the Mac. Ferget about Eagle, it's a completely non-intuitive program that should never have made it to Mac. -But Osmond works quite well. If you have trouble finding out how to make your first PCB, please follow the tutorials; after you've done so, you'll find Osmond PCB quite easy! :) Definitely recommended. I couldn't resist buying it, although I haven't gone past the limits yet. ;)

Update: After having used this application for a long time, I suddenly discover awesome features that I didn't notice before. One of them is the background PDF. 1: Draw your gadget enclosure in Photoshop (remember: You can create your drawing on exact measurements; I use cm and 300dpi), then use "Save As", pick "Photoshop PDF" (save as a copy!) In OsmondPCB, select File->Import. Now open the PDF. Of course, you drew your box enclosure on a canvas larger than the box itself, so in OsmondPCB's Edit menu, you choose "PDF Image..." and set the offset to - say -10mm, -10mm, then adjust the visibility of the image too. 2: You can set default units to imperial or metric - setting this to metric (or 'force metric') saves you from selecting 'mm' in the dialog-boxes containing coordinates; 'mm'. Excellent. 3: When you create your own components / parts you can prefix them with a category followed by colon, for instance... Part Name: 2.5mm Headers: PinRow 3x2 -This will put the part named PinRow 3x2 in the category "2.5mm Headers" 4: You can name the gerber files as you like. See the Edit menu! 5: You can flip the PCB so you work on the back-side of it, use "Flip Over" from the Design menu. -There are a lot more features I'd like to mention, but I use these so often, that anyone using OsmondPCB should try them out! Note: If you use Cenon, you should rename your gerber-files so they end in 'ger' instead of 'gbr', before importing them. Now, go and make some cool gadgets!!

Excellent app! Developer was very quick and helpful when I had questions. I have made products using this app with no problems from the pcb house.] DXF input works for most of my existing drawings from other apps.

Very stable and capable PCB layout package. I have produced many SMT and through-hole PCBs using Osmond, have have been very happy with the results. Integrates well with Designworks. The author has been consistant about releasing upgrades and bug fixes, and listens to feedback from his users.

A 'must have' application if you're into pcb-design. Good quality, often updated, has a few flaws but JC is definitely getting there. When it comes to designing pcbs I have no reason to start my wintel machine anymore. I cannot recommend this enough. /Per
