X-Carve Build

To improve the quality of my circuit boards and the precision of the panel, I knew I’d have to go digital. We determined that a CnC would be the best option for this, and after some research, we decided on Inventable’s X-Carve 750x750.

The parts shipped in multiple boxes. The boxes were labeled with their contents and this helped majorly in organization during assembly.

The entire build took me a Friday and by Saturday night, I had my first cut. 

KFETS Part 4: Circuit Boards 1


The short lights in my first prototype were connected by a circuit board, as were the meter panels displaying resistance. These circuit boards were the first I’d ever made, evident in the uneven hacksaw cuts on the side :), but were a good foray into the world of circuit board making.

After prototyping, I knew which connections I wanted, I had drawn rough schematics on paper while wiring. I finalized my initial schematics. The next step was to digitize my schematics and print a circuit to transfer. …
