CNC Cardboard Test


CNC Cardboard Test
Originally uploaded by mikeysklar

I designed a simple battery charging circuit for the CNC to cut out. Rather than go right to copper circuit boards I figured it would be best to do some tests with cardboard. The flute I'm using is 40 mills wide which is pretty damn big and causing some issues. I'll see what I can do to fix up the traces before going to copper.

Keep in mind that cardboard is going to machine far differently than the fiberglass circuit board.

Yes, the two materials are not at all alike. However, I need to verify that the CNC is cutting in the directions I expect and that the depth appears practical before going to the much more expensive circuit boards.
