I've built a small CNC machine that should, in theory, be able to mill a blank copper clad card to create a two sided PCB. I'm moving into the
testing stage and would like to get more serious about the software.
Has anybody done this before (hobby niveau)? If so, what kind of
workflow did you use?
- Is there a particular PCB CAD application that outputs the appropriate
type of file ("negative" HPGL for example)?
- I gather "positive" HPGL files must be cleaned up to account for the cutting tool size and cleaning out large areas of copper. Are there any
good applications or shareware out there? Projects?
- Any hardware issues (does a special 60,000 RPM motor really help???)
Any pointers would be appreciated.
