Do you print out stencils for laying down the paste? Whats your technique for that?

Looking great!  I usually go for the "chisel tip iron and desolder wick" method, but that's because I'm impatient and only doing a single board at a time lol

I don't use a stencil. I use the "spot method" using a pre-loaded syringe. It's a lot like decorating a very tiny cake, except that the frosting will cause kidney failure.

ROFL ok I'm quoting that lol

Also, color me impressed with that - solder paste application is something I haven't ever tried, but mostly because I usually order complex boards fully assembled at work and hand solder at home.

Hi all,

I'm about 75% of the way done with the project. Seems like it's time for a training video!

This one features some friendly and helpful AI advice! I show some footage of the panels in use, but mostly the video is about Artemis SBS.



I recommend full screen for the best experience. Enjoy!

Awesome vid, nicely done!
All too often I see "don't like the sound of my own voice, used a speech synthesizer" but it really works well here, it's perfectly "in character"   [biggrin]

why is it every time I talk to you/read a post/check out your stuff in any way at all, the scope of my own bridge project begins to creep exponentially?

UPDATE:

Put Science and Comms together. Plugged Comms in. I have some work to do on the status light reflectors, but everything else looks ok.

funny story - I was building a PCB to handle a switching/light matrix for me on my controls, to get the rats nest of wiring under control. Idea would be a little 4 wire harness coming off each button (2 for switch, 2 for LED) and connect to a 4pin JST on a little PCB, which then connects to one of AoR's shift register boards. So I designed it up, and sent off to JCLPCB for fabrications. Came back today and for giggles, I ran a Multimeter on it. No connectivity! ANYWHERE. So I pull up the eagle CAD file and realize that I never actually placed down any traces. OOOops. Electronic version of 'measure twice cut once' I suppose 😉

Yup! Traces help 😋

Looking forward to seeing how the new idea works out.

Good question!  I'd buy!

I've kind of wondered why some of the more prolific builders here aren't making a business of it.

Kits are in the works. For more information, check out this thread:

The ACP3 Overview and Guide on github is a good place to start.

Hi all,

Project is still going. Took some time in the last few months to play Artemis and spruce up the control panel code.

Refit of Normandy is nearly complete. Here are some photos of how the panels have changed over time.
