Hi, i feel kind of a goof ball asking but
i want to use eagle to have my campus CNC router do my PCBs and ditch the
dreaded and temperamental ferric chloride.
but i came across lots of terms and information each saying " this is THE
method", can you please point me in the right direction?
1)CAM and CNC milling/routing/drilling is the same, right?
2) there is apparently a " mill-outlines" script in EAGLE which generates
drill and mill files. if its that simple , why all the fuss and plethora of
(excellon, gerber, G-Code, and a big Etcetera)
all the info i've see so far doesnt say why NOT to use a format/method, i
need to know if its a choice or if it depends on something
3) cant i just export the drill fill/job and pop the circuit board in and
First experience with CNC , promise, next post will be actually insightful
and non-newbie .
