I had 600 boards made, and they don't match my schematic

The power switch on the schematic should turn power on, and I was not getting power. i took a board and examined it and the power switch is not connected properly. I went through something like this before, but it was my fault for using a customers part tht had zero holes for transformer legs.  Those boards were a big waste of my money and went in the trash.  I now make my own parts that i can find, and test them, yet my 600 boards are going to be nearly impossible  to fix, and I am out $180  in costs. This is bull shit, and I will have to find another company to make my boards.

If this is legitimately a manufacturing issue, JLC will refund everything. If it is a layout issue, you're on your own, because you didn't catch it before sending boards out for manufacturing. On a side note, placing an order for 600 boards before prototyping them is a bad practice. Even says it when selecting quantities larger than 250 that you should order prototypes prior to production runs.

As I said, when I went to compare the PCB layout, it was gone. I spent the last couple of hours recreating the board, and pulling all my own parts to it. I protoype my boards on my own, I have the means to do so.   I have to admit that there are way too many buggy things that go on in Easy Eda.   I have thousands of boards that came out perfect, but now I have two duds, and the first was my own fault for not knowing I was using a customers part, and not checking it for accuracy. I no long do that, I create my own parts, if I can't find them in the system.  I have switches i created, and power ports.  I no longer trust anything, and I check all my work before turning it in to be made.  I have a power switch that is wired half way, the output is there, but power did not get run to the switch.  So the switch does nothing.  Complaining will get me no where.  I'm out $180 on 600 boards.

In this topic: [https://easyeda.com/forum/topic/Part-problem-what-is-going-on-with-parts-a150bb1ae5004a14b7538009bda057b7](https://easyeda.com/forum/topic/Part-problem-what-is-going-on-with-parts-a150bb1ae5004a14b7538009bda057b7) you were advised to: "...just order the minimum quantity of PCBs to build a couple of prototypes rather than DIYing them. Then there's no room for error because you are building using the real PCB. If these prototypes work then you have some spare PCBs. If you find a mistake for whatever reason then you haven't really wasted the cost of the prototype boards and you have saved the DIY time spent that you can spend on something else."

I etch my own protoype boards from a 1:1 pdf image.  I am doing that now I the PCB I had to recreate because the original was gone when I went to look for it. My schematic was there, so it took some time because some parts needed to be modified after putting them on the board.   I am not new to this, and each time something goes wrong, it is not the software of EasyEda, it is always the customers fault.  If so many things can go wrong, making it the customers fault, why don't they fix the software to be better, or have it download to the customer and run it on their own computer? In any case, there is other easy to get software, and i may have to learn to use it so I can not have the internet to blame , or buggy software of EasyEda. As usual , it is all the customers fault when things go wrong.  It is the high shipping costs that keep me from ordering small orders.  I paid $80 to ship this order to me.

What I found was one trace missing to put power to the power switch. It is a major trace, and there was no way it was not on my board.  It is on the schematic, and the software forces you to save before doing anything. This is a big disappointment, and will require a wire to be soldered on the bottom of the board, making the board a hard thing to sell without negative customer feedback. I had to toss my first boards in the trash, and yes, that was my fault for not knowing that customers can add faulty parts to the part library.  I learned that lesson, and it was an expensive one, but this one, I put on the buggy behavior of the software. It is pretty good, but can get out of wack at times, requiring a log out, and log back in, and fix whatever was going on.  Even now, I am trying to edit the pins on a switch I created to my schematic will come out correct. I edit it in my parts library, then update, and nothing changed when i update the parts on the schematic. I'm going to have to use the pin numbers the software is using, and it won't match the actual numbers on the switch, and that will be something I can fix on paper before giving to my customer.  I've made parts before, so I don't know what the problem is.  In any case, I was not asking for help with this, only showing what adds to the frustration level of working with the software.

Oh, and ordering small batches of boards is expensive when shipping is way over the cost of making 5 or so boards.  It cuts into how many of the boards i have to sell before I turn a profit. That can take a long time.
