Manufacturing Hardware

The Open Circuit Institute is collaborating with Open Source Ecology to build and design a circuit board mill. Once OCI is well established, the high priority will become mill development. The machine has basic function but needs to be fine tuned, and is waiting on the successful completion of OCI Copper Carve. The design is based on OSE's D3D erector set.

Current design files can be found on the OSE Wiki
