Design Goals

What we want from our machine:

Here's a quick rundown:

  • Small and lightweight: an easily portable desktop unit.
  • Capable of completing a circuit board in 15 minutes.
  • Handles a 6" by 8" board.
  • High enough resolution and accuracy to handle a Dual In-line Package (DIP).
  • Routes out the traces of the circuit.
  • Drills the through-holes for mounting components.
  • Has an emergency stop button.
  • Once blank board is loaded and program is initiated, the machine is completely autonomous.
