My apologies if this has been answered – a search didn’t turn anything up.
Are layout files (or gerbers) posted somewhere for the MayFly? I need to make a shield for a project we’re doing and am having trouble finding the correct footprint. I unfortunately don’t have a MayFly on hand at the moment to measure it myself.

No, the gerbers are not available.

Is there a dimensioned drawing or anything for the shield footprint? I understand that the goal is to prevent counterfeiting, but this doesn’t make it so easy to integrate the MayFly into one’s system.

I just posted the Eagle files for the protoshield: https://github.com/EnviroDIY/EnviroDIY_Mayfly_Logger/tree/master/hardware/protoshield
Is that sufficient for what you need for making your own shield?
Edit: I also added the Eagle files for the basic outline of the full Mayfly board showing the headers and the mounting screw locations.

That’s perfect, thanks! I appreciate it.

This is my first time to use Eagle. I downloaded the free version (maybe this is the issue) in an effort to view the protoshield dimensions. When I try to open the .brd file, I get the following error:
line 8, column 16: This is not an EAGLE file.
I would appreciate your insight as to what I’m doing wrong.

It might be an error in how the file was downloaded from Github. Try downloading this zip file that contains both the sch and brd file. Click on the gray “Download” button on the top right to download the zip file.

I use KiCad, so I can’t help unfortunately – but here’s an image with some of the dimensions. If you need any others I can add them. The pin headers are 0.1″ spacing.

My error was indeed in how I downloaded the files. Shannon, thank you for setting me straight. Daniel, thank you for the image.

For those interested in the Eagle files for the full Mayfly board, we have released the Eagle .brd and .sch files for the latest Mayfly v0.5b board.

Yes! The Mafly logger is now fully open source hardware!
We also packaged things up nicely, including additional documentation from @shicks, into official releases, https://github.com/EnviroDIY/EnviroDIY_Mayfly_Logger/releases, which we’ve made fully citable: https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.2572006

That is fantastic news! It will speed up my preparations for the coming field season. Thanks for all your work!
