Drilling PCB using Microcontroller

  1. Aug 5, 2008 #1

    I need to know the mechanism of drilling my printed circuit board (PCB) with two step motors x,y using microcontroller.

    How to use eagle or orcad to control two step motors to drill and how can the microcontroller accept the eagle file to locate the coordinates of the driller?

    Thanks in advance!

    You want to make your own x-y-z PCB drill machine? What resources do you have available?

    A European magazine called "Elektor" did a kit for a computer controlled milling machine last year.

    Hi.. someone has already made that idea of yours in reality.. it is computer based driller. if you are interested go to college of engineering Ateneo de Naga University...
