Ultiboard is a PCB design tool made by National Instruments.

Design Rules

It looks like Ultiboard’s default design rules meet all of our specifications for all of our current services, but it’s always best to compare with the specs of the service you intend to order before starting your PCB layout.

We recommend this Ultiboard tutorial for setting design rules.

Remove the Alignment Points

Important! Please turn off the Alignment Points (Fiducials) before generating gerbers.

Submitting your design with Ultiboard’s alignment points makes your board cost significantly more by causing incorrect board area calculations.

File Naming

Our site understands Ultiboard’s default filenames. We strongly advise leaving the files with their default names avoid causing incorrect layer identification.

If a layer is not being identified properly, please contact [email protected].
