I’m about to join the local Hackerspace in the town where I live and suddenly have access to a bunch of toys I don’t own currently:
Industrial laser cutter
Multiple 3D printers
Small scale CNC machine
Which begs the question, what should I make first?
A CNC’d metal DT sign with 3D printed inserts and a wooden border that’s laser engraved with with PCB traces.
Not a bad idea for a first project. I’d have to make a space in the back of the 3d printed insert to hold a chip so the whole thing can be scanned by a phone and link straight to the DT website or forum.
Do the PCB traces go anywhere/do anything or just look cool on the outside of the border?
That would be cool! Maybe laser engraved traces, and a few LEDs scattered around with traces going to them?
