How to Custom PCBs with a CNC Router?

We will go step-by-step through the process of creating your own PCB from nothing but your imagination. A basic outline of the process looks like this:

Step 1. Design your PCB in Fritzing to generate “gerber” files
Step 2. Turn the gerber files into gcode using FlatCAM
Step 3. Send gcode to the CNC router using Universal Gcode Sender (or any gcode sender) to cut a PCB.

Once you have gone through the steps two or three times and have a basic understanding of what you’re doing, it’s actually quite simple. Believe it or not, I am able to perform this entire process, start to finish, in about an hour - and without referring to any documentation.
