DIY electroplating and CNC milling PCBs

in DIY, PCBs by DP | 4 comments

Here’s a video made by Cpirius of DIY electroplating and CNC milling of PCBs. The electroplating process he uses is good for down to 26mil vias.

It looks like cpirius has made a video of his entire PCB prototyping process: Drilling holes, electroplating, mechanically etching and cutting out the board.

Read more about the electroplating process in the forum.

    Isn’t there any G-code optimizer that would reduce all the unnecessary travels of the routing bit? It seems like 30% of the total time is spent moving the head long distances without actually cutting.

    Great stuff!

    Have you thought of Tinning your final board?
    I find it makes for a much more robust, and easy to solder board.
    Personally, I use MG Chemicals Liquid Tin.

    Always mesmerizing to watch a CNC at work :-)
