You take the gerber of the solder paste layer, put it trough a script someone wrote to create a file for the cutter, put a decent material under it to make a stencil from (i see a lot of people using overhead slides), and let the machine cut away .RogerClark wrote:What is the process for using that stencil cutter ?
it's not the original purpose of the machine, but pretty nice that it does a good job at that .
and it's indeed just for solder stencils, not for the tracks & traces of pcb's . Seeing as even with the osh stencil service i'll be out 10$ per stencil, it seems like a useful device . (and it's also just a cool toy to own :p ).
that's indeed the goal .zmemw16 wrote:i wonder if it's being used to make a stencil for depositing solder paste
