Question

Hi Harsha Alva how about using this CNC machine to print small scale single sided simple PCB. Is it feasible? and what modification to the laser would be required in the machine to etch Copper from the clad board. I’m asking this because apart from using traditional ferric chloride etching if one need a PCB to be etched, the design has to be sent to the company who prints PCB but does it at bulk and quite costly. So if this machine is somehow converted to PCB etching machine then it’ll be true multipurpose and very helpful for hobbyists. Please let me know your views :-)

3d printing pen won’t give us accurate result ,we need to look into extruders or some other option

Obtaining x and y motion won’t be a problem ,just have to lock the z axis

What do you guys think ? Should I make the prototype of that x ,y plotter

3 to 4 lakhs this is a huge amount
But these machines are of industry grade
They always cost that much because a small mistake will cost them alot more than that

But hobbyists like us ,we can make something very affordable machine
I believe we can make it in 60 to 70$
Need to do more research tho

What do you guys think ?
