Creating a Homemade PCB with the Voltera V-One PCB Printer

It’s amazing the sorts of things that can be printed these days: tools, artificial limbs, homes, and now even printed circuit boards.

I wonder if this will help with the global chip shortage.

In this video I will be testing out the Voltera V-One PCB printer and create a homemade PCB version of one of my older PCB projects in order to find out whether such a PCB printer is a good replacement for proper PCB manufacturers. Along the way we will discover all the advantages and disadvantages such a printer comes with. Let’s get started!
