I’m so happy and proud to present my first successful PCB Milling with XATC (diy automatic Tool changer).

Ok, i know the video quality is not the best and the Focus to the PCB is wrong, but hey that’s the first moment to have a success process and i want share this moment with you :slight_smile:

Excellent job, @Frank_Herrmann
I like to see the excitation in your eyes waiting for the first test results. Congratulations, this is a real milestone and achievement for whole community.

Fantastic! I want one! :slight_smile:

That’s big progress. Having it go from start to finish in one go is very exciting. Did you end up breaking a drill bit in that video? If so, why did it break?

Many thanks to all. @jlauer i guess, i move down the z-axis to fast. You see in the last drill-get, that i stop the machine befor touch the drill shaft.

Might it be that bit was a little out of spindle axis? How about putting tools into HDPE or other soft plastic material, so little misalignment errors would be forgiven?

Great job.!!
