I have been making my own PCBs (Printed Circuit Boards) for some time now. First, I had to create the schematic using software like EagleCad or KiCad. Most of my work has been done in EagleCad, though KiCad is free. Then from the schematic I go to creating the board layout. Dell-Ray got me stated in using this software, and thought me the basics. If there is any interest, I might be willing to make some youtube videos on EagleCad or anything else I am covering here. Well after I design the circuit and its board layout the next task is to get that design onto a board. Here I will talk a little on my journey through making circuit board. Starting off with chemical etching, then why I moved onto using a CNC router. Last, some of the pitfall to doing it your self.
