Title: draw working circuits
Post by: Admin on August 17, 2009, 02:26:35 PM
Silver conductive paint pen

Ran into this today . . . its mean for easy PCB trace repair, but figured it'd also be nice to draw your circuits without bothering with PCB or solder. Just hotglue your SMD parts to the surface after the circuit is draw . . . or something ghetto like that :P

thats pretty cool, it would be handy for a 5 minute prototype board that you don't want to have to solder and etch ;D

Anyone have ideas on how to make conductive ink for printers?
