Update to the use of FlatCAM to mill PCBs
There are quite a few entries on my blog regarding using FlatCAM to convert PCB design software manufacturing files into CNC code. I also have mentioned my small home made vacuum table and a floating foot compression device both for holding the PCB blank flat while the milling takes place.
I have revised my original write up to focus on FlatCAM version 8.991 and also pulled together notes on these other techniques. If you like it let me know. If there are mistakes also let me know.
