You can now design boards of any size and shape and with as many layers as you want. With a spatial resolution of 10 nanometers (0.00001 mm), Osmond gives you all the precision you need. You can place parts anywhere on the board with any orientation. You can also run traces of any width along any path and at any angle.

  • Concurrent support for both Imperial and metric units
  • All angle routing
  • Rubber-band traces
  • Rats Nest Layer
  • Variable size grid
  • Support for both through-hole and surface mount parts
  • Circular, rectangular, and oval pads

What's new in Osmond PCB

Version 1.2.8:

Note: Now requires OS X 10.13 or later

  • Fixed a decimal number localization problem in dialogs.
  • Fixed a printing justification problem.
  • Added a "Show Zero Width Traces" option to the "View" menu that can be turned off temporarily to make zero width traces invisible.
  • Part names within quotation marks in a design file can now contain the # character, which normally initiates a comment.
  • Added a checkbox to the Preferences window called "Part Aux Paths on First Two Layers". This affects the placement of Aux paths in Part Type definitions when more than two Aux layers are created. If the option is not set, then Aux paths in Part Type definitions will be placed on the first and last Aux layer. If the option is set, then Aux paths will be placed on the first two Aux layers, no matter how many Aux layers are created.
  • The Part panel in the Info dialog now contains the part's sub-design designation if applicable.
  • Added a Lua method that provides access to a part's sub-design designation. If p is a reference to a part, then p:sub_design() returns the sub-design designation as a string.

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 ? ;)))

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. ;)

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.

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!

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
