Solder stencil cut using Craft Robo cutting plotter

Spotted in the MAKE Flickr pool, some interesting process shots from user Shigeru Kanemoto, who’s used a Craft ROBO brand paper-cutting robot to prepare a stencil for applying solder paste to a PCB in preparation for SMT assembly. Uppermost, the stencil freshly cut; immediately above, solder paste applied. Cool idea, with a few more shots in Shigeru-san’s photostream.
