Custom Shape PCB

EricBrian 3 years, 5 months ago

I am trying to create a custom shape pcb (christmas tree) that I can put LEDs on to give away as gifts this coming christmas. The same is in PNG format and I am trying to follow the instructions to convert it into something that Frizting can work with.

 

The instructions I tried to following are at:

http://fritzing.org/pcb-custom-shape/

 

However, things just aren't working out for me.

 

This is the shape:

 

In addition to not being able to follow the steps on that page, I don't know if this shape is producable by a manufacturer.

 

Ignoring the the latter, does anybody have experience making custom shapes and give me some tips? 

 

Thanks!

Eric

You have to export it to an SVG with the proper IDs for the vectors.  Then Fritzing will be able to read it and import.
