Nice single sided board. How'd you get the black printing on?Why'd you apparently embed a nano vs just using the components that make one up?
Wow... such dislike for what I consider "an enjoyable use of my time" versus "messy".
Wow... such dislike for what I consider "an enjoyable use of my time" versus "messy".All my toner transfer stuff is "once-off" so going through the steps of sending it out to be fabricated are... well... annoying to me. And If a mistake creeps in... Meh... what's the harm in little 28AWG jumper wire?I have the stuff I need to make it now, so I do. Example: a good Laminator, Drill Press, Pool chemicals... the carbide PCB drills and not really too much of an investment is involved.Examples below: Yes, Toner silkscreen, locked in place by dullcote clear lacquer (2 light coats)So to me... the process works... and results are good and a fun way for "me" to spend a Sunday afternoon.
You're still left with having unmarked boards (what many consider the silkscreen, all the parts labels (Reference Designators, R1,C1, etc). You also have to add wires to connect top & bottom traces for any vias that were used.If doing small SMD parts or fine traces, solder mask makes assembly a lot easier. You have to be sooooo careful applying solder without soldermask.
SMD works are all insdustrial and needs professsional training and touch for mastering.Also,unless you do not design a high speed circuit you are off from many design cconsideration like trace thichness,clad board selection,etch time and its concentraton.Ultimately it's like a private fun and passion
