Step #1: Next
- This is the Arduino GRANDE. It acts like an oversized, fully functional Arduino, but it is actually a shield of sorts.
- Wiring an actual Arduino board to the GRAND allows you to demonstrate Arduino programing and use on a much larger scale.
Step #2: Next
- Vector cut and raster etch the board file onto 5mm acrylic using a laser cutter.
- The files were created with Rhino, but can be printed with any laser cutter software that accepts common file formats.
- Test speed and power settings to get a good, clean cut and neat etching.
Step #3: Next
- Cut the headers, USB, and power jack parts out of 6mm acrylic.
- Test fit them together.
- Fill in the etching with white acrylic craft paint.
- You can wipe off any excess from the smooth board surface, or do extra clean up with rubbing alcohol.
