An Exercise in Failure
My first attempt at fabricating the circuit board faced a few issues.
Because of the bit sizes, there’s a weird design.
Design is Too Small: When I’d finally tried to get the design milled on the bantam, it ended up being a lot smaller than I’d anticipated.
Circuit Not Working: There’s likely a loose wire, or incorrect solder. I’ll have to re-do this for it to work. In the process of trying to diagnose the issue, I accidentally shorted some of the LED’s so the whole circuit is not going to work until I figure out what’s going wrong and fix it.
Wrong Tools: I accidentally ordered the wrong bits and realised this very late. Since I’d been set back a little bit because of my medical issues, I had to go it alone for most of the fabrication process.
I will have to redesign the files, and re-do the layouts since the auto layout didn’t help too much.
