3D Printed Solder Paste Stencil?

Recommended Posts

I've not tried laser cutting stencils yet (as I'm still perfecting my PCB etching) but I'll give it a go soon. My eBay special is about as cheap as you can go for a 40W CO2 laser - about $800 after conversion to use Mach3 for control. I believe they've been used successfully for mylar stencils. I don't think any of the home made laser diode machines would have enough power to cut a stencil but I could be wrong.


I'd imagine a single layer 3D print would very fragile and even a little porous. That links seems to prove it can be done though.
