Circuit Design and Fabrication = Sound Objects
Date & Time
February 18
Machine Project

Circuit boards are often much more durable and reliable than hand-wired projects. They allow you to generate many identical circuits quickly. They also look really nice.

By the end of the day each student will create a tangible product! We will design, lay out in software, print, iron to copper board, etch in a chemical bath, and assemble.

We will cover:

  • schematic and board design using free software
  • board design guidelines
  • board etching with cheap, accessible materials
  • assembly and mounting

Bring a portable computer (mac or windows or linux). Bring a contact-mic-able* object. Something that makes fascinating sound when struck. We will make small noises larger together.
