Any PCB Shape Will Work
From simple rectangles to circular boards, irregular shapes with internal cutouts, and custom profiles made to fit form-factor cases, the inspectAR tool will still work. The custom calibration matches the profile of your board exactly, accounting for overhanging, side-mounted components, and any internal cutouts or slots your design may have. There is no limit on the size of the board that you can use, as everything in the inspectAR tool’s videos is filmed using circuit boards that are 30cm or smaller in their largest dimension. Boards larger than 30cm will work, just initially position your camera far enough back to get 80% of the board in view. Mobile devices make this easy, and you can move the camera forward and zoom in further after that. You also may not need the fine detail of being able to view tiny and fine pitch components on a larger board. You can easily exceed the 30cm dimension limit if you do not need this level of detail. The following is an example of larger components such as header pins and connectors with a two-foot measure for scale of what you can do.
