This video from Boxford shows the process of printing a printed circuit board using a CNC router. It shows the complete process from the initial CAD design through to a fully routed circuit board. Firstly a design for the circuit is created using CAD software. This is then exported as a Gerber file and processed. Next the routing process is simulated prior to machining. The board is then machined, starting with isolation of the copper tracks. Finally the component holes are drilled in the centre of the copper pads. Curriculum links include PCB production and the use of CAD/CAM in electronics and systems and control.
