    Hello everyone!

    We made a video how to make a printed circuit boards using diode laser installed on a 3D printer (or you can put on any CNC mill).



    The idea is that you cover copper board with a vinyl film and then remove it with a diode laser.
    The simply put into Ferrum chloride.
    If anyone has an idea how to make edges more accurate, please let us know.

    I saw that video before, on your site I think, and what I thought then, and now, is that you have a lot of 'creep'. I don't know if it is the acid creeping under the vinyl or if it is the vinyl unevenly burning from the laser. Did you try spray painting the copper with a black paint or black ink that are acid resistant?
