VESC build from Github

Hello Guys, Firstly I want to introduce my self a little bit. I am German, maybe you already noticed that :smiley:

Now to the Project, I want to build some VESCs with the information on Github! (Only want to build one, but i think it will be better to do more and maybe sell Oder sth) But…I don’t have any experience with it. That’s the bad point.

And another, but… I have a lot of experience in electronics I learned it, I also make a second traineeship about it. I have a LOT of equipment to work with! -SMD Placing machine (Paraquda) -SMD soldering paste printer -SMD Solder Oven -Soldering irons normal and SMD -And a lot of components -STM Programming Debuggers -STM controllers 8/32…etc.

I also have good contacts where I can cheap circuits boards.

But I never orderd them with files like on Github (Gerber)…

So in that point I need help… What would the first thing I should do? Send the gerbers to my supplier? And which one? There are so many files…

Would be really happy if somebody could help me… Best regards!

Just send a zipfile with all the gerbers you find to the fab, there is even a zip already in the repo if I am correct. The PCB fab will tell wether it is ok or not. And don’t cheap out on PCB’s, it is the core and body of the whole VESC.


For the components:

Download this:

Use an online converter to convert it to xlsx such as this one:

Upload it into Mouser and walk through the setup. It will then give you a list of components.

For the pcb: Or just download the gerber files and upload the files that they ask (such as mask, silkscreen etc)

Hope this helps


Thanks :slight_smile: sry I said that not right… I mean i get them in very very good quality but cheap because I do all my orders (about 6000pcs/yr) there.

Ok thanks! So I will first send them the zip and will wait what they say.

(You mean the last zip file is including all they need?)

i wanted to recommend you Danny :)) but you are to fast :slight_smile:

Haha thanks :p.

Yeah the bottom zip it is.

You order that many pcbs but never from gerber file? What other files do you send then? Eagle files?
