mbeals 74 Posted January 31, 2013 Share Posted January 31, 2013 I've been thinking the last few days about two ideas. One is to etch symbols or text into a copper pour, then mount LED's upside down on the backside such that they illuminate through the board. The other one is to make a cutout in the board with pads on the backside, but not mirrored, so I can mount an IC upside down in the hole, letting it sit much flatter than traditional surface mount. I know these ideas can't be original to me, but google has not turned up any examples of either. Has anyone here tried either of these things? How did it wind up working out?
