What is a Project?

Projects are simply each unique PCB design artwork you upload to the inspectAR application. Each new Project requires either an IPC2581b output from EDA's such as Cadence, Altium, and Zuken, or a board file from Eagle or KiCAD.

Changing a component in a revision, (for example: The value of a resistor), will not require a new project, however, moving components or otherwise changing the artwork/gerber will require a new project.

By selecting the option to add a new project, you will have the opportunity to select the EDA you're using and will be prompted to upload a relevant file as well as the option to upload a BOM.
