Milling a PCB – Sherline Mill, Dremel tool, 0.2mm engraving cutter

Trying out the new PCB prototyping setup. I’m using a Dremel mounted on a Sherline desktop mill I retrofitted for CNC operation. The tool is a 0.2mm, 40-degree engraving cutter. Depth is about 0.08mm. EMC2/Axis is running the show. The results here were really pleasing. The cuts were quite clean and the drill holes came […]

Milling a PCB from within Altium Designer

Altium Designer includes some pretty sophisticated scripting capabilities so I had a go at writing a script to generate RML (Roland Milling Language) commands from an Altium Designer PCB so I I can mill out prototype PCBs using a low-cost milling machine. This is great for schools and Universities too since you don’t need to […]
