I'm trying to get into diptrace and I'm wondering about best practices for routing. I'm starting off by trying to make a test board. I've laid out my components. I did my ratlines next.
- How bad is using the auto tracer? I tried it and it seemed fine but to be honest, I'm not sure what is good practice.
- Ground. I was just using normal routes though I know some people use the rest of the PCB (ground plane?) to act as a ground. Would it be an issue if I just used normal routes?
- What size should routes be? Can they be too small? Is default okay?
