Implementation of Paper PCB Using Conductive Ink 2D Plotter
Published in Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc.
This system is mainly based on two techniques, CNC machine and 3D printing. 2D plotter is used for drawing circuits on any surface like paper, cardboard as per the user requirement and conductive ink or marker is used as an object for drawing circuits. Conductive marker is placed in such a way that it can be moved in x and y direction using stepper motor and in up and down direction using servo motor. Arduino Uno or mega and CNC shield is used to drive motors. Benbox software is used to generate G-code and give input image of drawn circuit to the plotter. The research work is focused on a low cost and simple controlling system for 2D plotter machines to draw electronic circuit diagrams of PCBs on any surface. © 2018 IEEE.
