Crosshatch Art

Crosshatch Art With A Ballpoint Pen

This artwork is created with the Makelangelo  software. We exported a DXF, then brought the file into Inkscape to create the final GCODE file.

We really liked the way these turned out!

Tutorials coming soon.

PCB Fabrication

EVEZOR ROBOTIC ARM PLACING SMD COMPONENTS ON A CIRCUIT BOARD

Evezor Will Mill PCBs and Place the Components

 

The traces were milled out with a 1mm endmill in a standard rotary tool.  The toolpaths for the traces were designed in Inkscape.

The smd components were 0603in size, picked with a vacuum gripper, then placed in the desired locations.

The solder paste was done by hand, but could have just as easily been done with evezor.  We have designs for a solder paste extruder but will be waiting until we come back to this project again in the future.

Laser Cutting Tutorial

Today we lasercut the letter E into some cardstock

See Our Video

 

 

We used Inkscape to create the gcode for this letter.

We also created a tutorial so you can learn to make patters of your own. See it here.

 

 

 

Our toolhead here was just a little diode laser we source online that we put into a CPU heatsink and clamped to our arm.
