chemical etched pcb
Created by: emmapa
During the last week we (regional group: Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam) had to ask Neil if the chemical etching process is allowed for the electronic assignments because Brussels has problems with the small milling machine.
From the prep-meeting video of the 23rd of Feb (at the end of the video), Neil's answer was: "the answer is that they need to do both, they need to go somewhere to machine because we want them to have that as a skill because we want them to be able to machine without chemical waster setup, so... they do need to show both.
they can do all of their boards for the class with etching, but for the main pcb fabassignment they do need to show mastery in machining. so for that assignment they need to go somewhere else, its not your […] i wanna make sure they know how to make pcb without chemical waste.”
It means that the students in brussels are allowed to chemically etch the weekly projects. I think this is a kind of special case/condition.
I wonder: should we write down these kind of situations somewhere? There is the chance it will happen again to some other labs/students and it would be handy to keep note of the answers.
