Circuit board can be made at home-PCB circuit board 3D printer




A new circuit board 3D printer has received crowdfunding five times more than the original crowdfunding plan of 70,000 US dollars. This printer can directly print PCB circuit boards.


This great name is Voltera V-One, and it can print a complex circuit board within a few minutes by controlling the inkjet of conductive ink and insulating ink. This circuit board PCB printer can even directly pause. Enter the established program and continue printing, or you can spray solder paste to directly fix the components to the circuit board.

Voltera V-One PCB 3D printer will spray conductive ink according to the circuit diagram to make the circuit, and then separate the different layers with insulating ink. The emergence of this printer does not mean that it can directly replace the traditional PCB manufacturing industry, but a convenient tool for PCB designers and developers to design and test. This circuit board 3D printer can print conductive ink with a width of 2 mm.


"How many times have you thrown the newly made circuit board into the trash can with a small circuit design error or missing a resistor?" said Waterloo, the chief creator of the company that produced this product. Do you often encounter such a situation? Now that you have a V-One printer, you can quickly do circuit board testing, and you no longer have to waste so much money and the two weeks of long waiting for proofing.


This PCB 3D printer only has a button box, an ink cartridge to store ink, and a nozzle. When making a double-layer board, first finish the first layer with conductive ink, and then the user only needs to replace the insulating ink to complete the subsequent work.


"The printer's software will guide the user every step of the detailed operation, even including the conversion of PCB files." The project developer said.


In fact, this PCB circuit 3D printer is not the first time it has appeared, but most similar machines are only used in the research and testing stage, and have not yet become the mainstream of the market. For example, Georgia Tech, jointly developed by the University of Tokyo and Microsoft in the past two years.


Researchers at the University of Tennessee have developed a disposable sensor system soft board that can be printed, which can be used as an "electronic skin" on a robot as an operating interface.


Researchers at Harvard University also released a 3D circuit board PCB 3D printer last month, which can print a mixture of thermoplastics and highly conductive inks. In this way, electronic products are not produced separately from molds and circuits, but are manufactured as a whole. The 3D printer will be sold by Voxel8, a company founded by Jennifer Lewis, a professor of bioengineering at Harvard University.


The price of Voxel8’s 3D printer is US$8,500, while the price of Voltera V-One is only about US$1,500. Voltera V-One is sold at a price of 1,200 yuan in the first round, which has all been sold out.
