Need a Circuit Board? Just Print It.
3D printing is all the rage in tech circles. It has been used to make houses, guns, ears and more. The printers have been a boon to hardware engineers prototyping new products, eliminating the need to make and break molds. Now the electrical engineers can get in on the act, 3D printing their own circuit boards. A group of students from Waterloo, Ontario have spent the last two years perfecting the circuit board printer. The printer will allow engineers making prototypes to make them fast and cheaper. It also means they can make refinements sooner. The group is now preparing to ship their V-One printers to their Kickstarter backers.
