This project aims at equipping PTL with a PCB mill for rapid in-house electronics prototyping. The particular goal is to establish a well-maintained, in-house PCB production workflow. The final goal is to be able to complete simple projects (schematic → tested board) within an evening and have a decent throughput (“a PCB a week”).
The mill to be built is a Cyclone, version 2 (see links below). As of 8/11/2014, version 2 of the Cyclone has not yet been released, but it seems to be in a “PTL-complient-enough” shape to give it a try!
For a list of fabricated PCBs look at here PCB creation!
All parts are based on version c0c7732 (Hardware/CYCLONE_2) of the official repository. Not mentioning screws and other small stuff.
Sorted by importance.
|Description||Drawing||File (Output_files/)||Bounding box (total XxYxZ mm)||Comment/Status||Picture|

|PCB holder||Cycl_Ycarriage_PCBholder_x2.stl||120x58x59||printed on Solidoodle|
|Base plate||Multilayer||30.5x30x2.5 cm||Migros||size to be confirmed|
|Movable plate||MDF||21.5×12.0x1.1 cm||Migros||size to be confirmed|
|Threaded rod (X)||300mm x 8mm||1||1m x 8mm thread rod kindly provided by Paul|
|Threaded rod (Y)||200mm x 8mm||1|
|Threaded rod (Z)||90mm x 8mm||1|
|Smooth rod (X)||250mm x 8mm||2||metallbau-pietrzak.de||arrived|
|Smooth rod (Y)||210mm x 8mm||2|
|Smooth rod (Z)||110mm x 8mm||2|
|Linear bearing||LM8UU||11-12||ricardo.ch||arrived (x12)|
|Radial bearing||608||4||ricardo.ch||arrived (x10)|
|End-stop switches||??||3/6||aliexpress.com||arrived (x20), too small, but “made fit”|
|Stepper Motor Driver||StepStick A4988||3||reprap.me||arrived (x4)|
|Driver heat sink||for A4988||3||reprap.me||arrived (x8), but drivers came already with heatsinks|
|Power supply||TODO||1||TODO||12V 7A (2A per motor + 1A for electronics)|
This comprises newer stepper drivers (in case we need higher currents) and a RAMPS. The latter is also used for the 40W Laser Cutter and goes in direction of unifying PTL CNC controls, but might require some work for height-probing.
