Conference Meeting

Via Skype. Ask for skype contacts via mail.

Next: 10pm CET April 26, 2012


We use Tortoise HG for Revision Control. Here you can see a little tutorial about tortoise, available for linux and win.

  • /.hg - includes the revision database
  • /brain_StOrm - good to put pictures, drafts of any idea
  • /CAD - includes the Prototype Folders
  • /CAD/YYYY_MM_DD_Name_001 - includes the SolidWorks CAD Drawings
  • /Documents - Documents in general

At any file yout put inside please use the prefix YYYY_MM_DD_ on the creation date and clear title what is inside of the file.


What Programms and Hardware we use:

  • Google Sketchup
  • SolidWorks
  • Arduino


  • dropbox
  • twitter
  • flickr
  • googlegroups
  • to be fullfilled



If it's going to be a dedicated circuit mill, as opposed to a generic tabletop CNC that happens to be used for circuit milling, then it should have more functions. With only a modest increase in complexity it could have a copper board "magazine" and a mechanical flipper that would automatically position an arbitrary number of two-sided copper boards to be milled on both sides. Perhaps the router bit can also be used to drill (route) some of the holes; at least the mounting holes. Both a router and drill can be mounted on the gantry. The router can be solenoid controlled (down to the right height or up and out of the way). The drill can be on the z-axis so it has full range of motion.

  • The Red Blue CNC mill was Nick Santillan's graduate project. It is made up of three identical axes with holes every 3.5", allowing them to be reconfigured modularly. At his blog and Ponoko and Design Boom and core77
