Im trying to build a pcb board for my 3d printer that will connect a laser module to my ender 3 v2.

Here are the links to the article and the linked github with the pcb design.

My FAN runs at 24V R1 must be 2.2KOhm.

Ive tried to open it in kicad and export the correct files to be able to send to a manufacturer to build and assemble but I am having zero luck. I just want to send whatever files I need to off to whichever company so that they can take care of everything and ship me the completed part.

- I have no idea what company to choose. im just wanting 1 board as quickly as possible. any suggestions on who to go to would be very helpful
- Can someone help throw these files together for me so that i can just send those files off to be made. I spent a good 6 to 8 hours reading and everything about kicad trying to accomplish this with no luck. that why im turning to the experts for help.

thank you for any help

What exactly isn't working? Did you read the documentation? Don't forget the drill file.

A few days ago I placed an order at jlcpcb for a ridiculous $1.75 + shipping, but there are many others. It's a trade-off between price and lead time. This is frequently discussed on the forum, you might try a forum search for this.

im following this guide

https://dubiouscreations.com/2019/10/21/using-kicad-with-jlcpcb-assembly-service/

- im not sure how make my pcb use jlcpcb's library
- i generated the bill of materials ok i believe. But I was chatting with another manufacturer trying to get this solved and they kept asking for the bill of materials, and everytime I sent them the BOM file they said they need a manufacturer part number for each component so that they can make sure to use the right one. Which I have no idea how to go about accomplishing.
- and when im trying to generate the Footprint Position (.pos) File i get an error no footprint for automated placement.

also on another chat with a totally different manufacturer i tried uploading the files i attempted at making and he said the person who designed this didn't add an outline, which is required for production. which i had no idea was even a thing.

And thats only step 3 ug. Now i have read many articles and the docs but im just worried that when trying to fix one thing ill mess up the premade pcb somehow. thats why im asking for some major help.

thanks for the time

At a glance I don't see a through hole assembly service at jlcpcb.
The circuit looks simple enough to do on a perfboard. You'd have to source the components yourself.
