Getting started with PCB milling - a question and a journey
First a description of my skill set; I work with Linux computer systems and have both formal training and practical experience with electronics. I have no previous CNC experience.
I have used Eagle CAD for PCB layout using the toner transfer method and my desire is to set aside the chemicals. I have a paid hobby version of Eagle CAD and the gcode ulp setup and working.
I have mill ends for the CNC; 1/32" 2 flute and a .005" micro endmill (I want to try smd path isolation).
The demo video indicates milling an mdf board to provide a level work field. How is this done?
I assume that milling the board in that fashion will provide me proper Z height for my pcb milling? And advice or insight would be appreciated. I hope to give it a go this coming weekend.
