Laser4DIY is an Open Hardware project by FabLab München. It’s a laser structing device for prototyping PCBs i.e. it’s a laser “engraver” that directly removes copper from blank copper clad boards using laser ablation (instead of milling or etching). For more details see laser4diy.org
The project is currently doing a (closed) beta testing phase with funding from Prototype Fund Hardware. We have 2 groups trying to replicate the device from the published documentation, one directly at the FabLab München (Munich, Germany), the other at the Das Labor in Bochum, Germany. At the same time we are working on the documentation, adding missing parts and improving the existing ones.
This thread will be used to give updates on the build progress of both teams. Feedback (technical issues, open questions, missing information) will be given by opening Github issues in the Laser4DIY repositories
All the best
