PCB Builder New Feature: Upload from URL

DigiKey has created feature to make it easy for people with publicly hosted PCB projects to uploaded to to PCB Builder via a URL.

If you host your project on GitHub, your own website, a blog, or anywhere else where your set of PCB files files can be directly downloaded, a link can be provided where it can be uploaded directly into PCB Builder without having to first download and re-upload files.

The format of the URL is simple.
https://www.digikey.com/en/pcb-builder/?fileurl=[url to file]

I ran the first example and found it did not qualify for DKRed. What was the error?

" Your file does not qualify for the Digikey Red program.
To get an instant quote, the following requirements must be met:
Drill hole size must be less than 250mils."

Yeah, I need to rework these demos. I’ll get this updated.
