Circuit Board Milling

Circuit Board Milling
Originally uploaded by mikeysklar

I spent the afternoon making three pretty low quality circuit boards. I'm stilling figuring out the nuances of the circuit design software. The thing that is killing me right now is trying to get cut lines for the mounting holes and board edges. I'll figure out a work around tomorrow.

Looks very promising and I can feel your pain between the three boards, it is like one think works, but breaks another.

April 22nd, hackaday had an article on pcb milling, perhaps it has some useful tips http://hackaday.com/2011/04/22/pcb-milling-tutorial

@killbox: It's a good article. I commented on the hackaday page saying how much I appreciated their videos and PDF. Those guys have a totally different mill and software, but the fundamentals are the same.
