We got our circuit boards we designed back , and we used high temperature soldering iron along with soldering tin to weld pins, resistance, etc. onto our boards. Now we saved ourselves efforts for connecting the boards ! We no longer need those crazy wires and tiny step motor driver.

We also learned to use Inkscape to draw laser-cutter diagrams. Red represents cutting through the line; blue represents vector engrave, and black represents raster engrave.
