Quick couple of questions, I am designing my first PCB and want to have a few boards prototyped with OSH Park.
For a board I will be manually soldering components to, will I need to include a tCream layer or is this for automated soldering only?
And, do hobbyists generally make the surface mount pads a little larger than the components data sheet specifies, to help with soldering? Are there any other tips/tricks a first timer might like to know to make life easier?
And, for milled slots, i.e. two holes for a USB receptacle to mount to the board, do I need to include a note for these or is the data on the 'holes' layer sufficient?
Thanks in advance
