First Success with PCB Milling

Post by Ironaxe » Thu Jul 03, 2014 10:11 pm

After my eShapeoko is now up and running i could not resist to try my first PCB Milling Process.
And i think it worked well so far.
It needed a bit of deburring, the Holes and Cutouts are a Bit off ( caused by my Spindle. When i turn it on after Autolevelling and the Ground Pin is still connected the Y- & X-Axis tends to Jerk a bit. ( AIRWIRED ^^ )) and the Trace Width is 0.1-0.2mm too small.
But meh.....for a first Test ^^ .....and still usable.
