Hello Øyvind,

Have I understood this correctly: You're using
a pen plotter to print directly on the PCB ?


Is this the etch pattern or the silkscreen,
and which type(s) of pen(s) are you using ?

The plotter draw directly the etch pattern on the PCB.
The pens are home made: Old HP pen with a shorted and polished thin disposable cannula glued inside. The pen is open top, one drop of ink is enough for the etch pattern. A thin copper wire hang in the cannula and brakes the ink flow.

Regards, Andreas
