This is not a CAD question, my apologies to those with limited bandwidth.

On occasion, we need to produce small runs of boards with surface-mount
parts. We do through-hole boards by hand day in and day out, but
surface-mount tech is a mystery to me, so we offload them to a local
assembly house. I don't mind paying other folks to do stuff that we
don't want to get into, like powder-coating, painting, fabbing pcbs,
etc., but it kinda rankles me to pay to have someone build up boards
just because I don't know how to do them myself.

Are there turnkey SMD assembly systems for small-volume work? I assume
we'd need a way to screen paste onto the boards, smoosh the parts on,
then flow the solder. There -- I've shown how little I understand.

Some have gone this route

Google toaster oven SMD for more
