Basic step in electronic devices construction is PCB (printed circuit board) manufacturing. Preparing PCBs at home is quite boring and long task. That made me think how to simplify this task. I have working CNC router (as described in CNC section of this web) and I attempted to use it in PCB manufacturing process. In this article I will describe one of two procedures I finally found out. It is based on scratching paths in covering film on PCBs and subsequent etching. Continue reading
When I finished mechanical construction of my CNC router it was time to make it alive using some electronic.
After I crashed my 2 meters wingspan CAP232 (in the middle of header image) I decided to build new improved version. Computer aided design was obvious choice. So own CNC router became actual topic again. Continue reading
Since I am interested in RC models and computer technology it was only matter of time to get idea to create computer controlled milling machine. Continue reading
