Sub forum for making your own PCBs on ShapeOko?

Post by jrsteensen » Fri Jun 29, 2012 8:47 pm

Interested in getting my machine initially cutting my own PCBs...however many of my designs are double sided, and would require vias, which I have never played with before and have no idea how to accomplish. It would be pretty cool to get our own subforum for PCBs...perhaps another subforum for tooling for the spindles, i.e. endmills and such.

Thanks!

A subforum would be good for PCBs.

BTW, some folks just etch both sides with a CNC then drill the vias, but use the component lead
or a piece of wire soldered in to make the top to bottom connection.
