super grateful to Fablab Barcelona that let us to produce some PCBs for Knitic with their milling machine. Also kindly guided through the process. Muchas gracias!

and after quick soldering we got this:

This time we made 1layer PCBs because of short time for production. But would like to try out double side circuit milling in the future. This will be quite precise work.

Some tips that we learned:
1. use KB type boards for a milling machine. Those are much softer than fiber ones and doesn’t break drills so easily. However the drawback is fragile connection pins, especially these ones that goes to Arduino.
2. mirror circuit if soldered on the back of PCB
