Full Panel PCB Painting -- Fabricated!

Blake Ramsdell wrote 06/08/2017 at 19:22 • 1 min read • Like

The latest #PCBPainting from @David I. Herman comes to life via @oshpark production. 22x16 inches! Special thanks to OSH Park for all of the production assistance!

I'm very happy with how this turned out. I love this as an art medium. This blend of fine art and technology is very romantic to me.

Happy to consider commissions and suggestions for future pieces. If it can be represented as a bitmap, it can be rendered as a PCB Painting! Please comment below with your thoughts.

We do offer a volume discount with our Medium Run service: http://docs.oshpark.com/services/two-layer-medium-run/

However, we made a special arrangement with @Blake Ramsdell for this project as we like to encourage ambitious designs.  Please get in touch if you have something you think we could collaborate on.

thanks,

How much did that thing cost?

My back of the envelope calculations say $5280 USD at full price.  Or does 'art' get some sort of a discount?

You can calculate it pretty easy on OSH Park. $5 per square inch for a set of three. So it'd be $1760 / 3 or about $587 per, plus shipping. Though Seeed Fusion would be MUCH cheaper in this case if you were willing to settle for metric 50 cm max.. $326 for 5 pieces (plus color fee... $10-20 and shipping). About $65 per panel.
Making PCBs really is not expensive these days.. even full sized panels.

Do it double-sided with some vias in discrete spots and you could incorporate LEDs and capsense buttons into the painting to make it interactive.

I've been painting, and etching boards for decades. I'm annoyed I didnt think of this but Kudos to you and David for actually doing it, also for allowing OSHPark to handle the production to their Royal Purple standard :-)

These boards are beautiful, I wish you every success.

I am so ecstatic with the continuing evolution of our newest artform PCB paintings and their as yet unrealized potential.  Thanks Blake they look great.
