CNC'ing your Fritzing circuit

CNC'ing Fritzing Circuit

Our friends from FabLab Torino have created a wonderful tutorial (thanks to Federico Vanzati) on how you can prepare a Fritzing circuit for production with a CNC milling machine. It’s a relatively straightforward process using a vector software like Inkscape to convert the Fritzing DIY format to the “negative” format that the milling machine requires. The picture above shows the result. What’s nice is that they now also sourced the adequate DIY CNC machine. The Roland iModela is now available in the Arduino Store.

There have been attempts from others to mill Fritzing circuits: Checkout Don Roberts’ report, and also the tutorial from the FabLab Amersfoort (thanks to Peter Uithoven).

And then there’s still Fritzing Fab. :)
