Rapid PCB Printer

Unfortunately, we are too late to get our hands on one. It looks really promising. I am not going to go into much detail, just watch the vid. Amazing!

I am going to keep an eye on this. Hopefully once they sell all the first run machines, I can get my hands on one.

The downfall of these type of printers is generally the resistance (and cost) of the ink. They claim a sheet resistance of 12 mOhms, which is better than most. I guess we'll see.

I'm still thinking about how to make a DIY MultiWire "printer".

Agreed. It seems to be a great prototyping tool. Albeit, if you're doing anything high speed related, it probably wouldn't work very well.

If I have one, making PCBs will not cost most of my time in electric design. :D
