Hi. I tried to laser cut a prototype of the possible new PCBs on paper. The results are shown below:
As I'm using a very low power (500mW) 808nm laser diode, the cutting speed must be very small (25mm/min), so patience is a must.
Parts were drawn on Sketchup, exported as STL and converted to G-Code using MeshCAM. They were fed to the CNC controller (tiny-g) using a software I made and called YetAnotherGCodeSender. Source code is publicly available. The CNC is a modified ShapeOko2.
Here is the pre-assembling:
And this is the final result:
As always, your comments are welcome!
