Summary
【ゆるファブレシピ】
・AdaptationBoard is an open-source educational LED PCB that is also a training material for adapting electronic handcraft to life or hobby.
・Several kinds of holes on the board enable various adaptations.
・AdaptationBoard is craftable with RolandDG SRM-20.
・Please refer to the following instruction about how to craft it.
・You can download the data of an acrylic cover from this page.
・Please share your ideas about adaptations!

        • 2. Preparation for cutting

          0
          Use different endmills for circuit and exterior frame
          Circuit: Endmill ZEC-100 (cutter for words)
          Exterior frame: Endmill ZHS-200 (straight endmill)
          Prepare a board 4~5 cm thick and attach it to a work table of SRM-20 with double-faced tape. (If you are experienced, you might want to do leveling)

          • 2-1. Attaching an endmill

            0
            Attach Endmill ZEC-100 (cutter for words).
            Support blade edge with your finger to prevent it from falling down.

            *Please be careful not to drop the endmill, or its blade edge might get broken.

            0
            Adjust the origin of XY to the left front side of the substrate.

          • 2.4 Adjustment of the origin of Z

            0
            Use arrow keys to move endmill close to the substrate. (Be careful that it does not touch the substrate at this point)
            Use a wrench to loosen the fixation and pull down the endmill manually so that it barely touches the ground.

            *If you drop it, blade edge of fine endmill might get broken. Use your finger as in 2-1.
            *Make sure that a part indicated by a red sphere has about 1cm space. Otherwise, the endmill does not move down any further.
          • 2.5 Lifting up the endmill before processing

            0
            After adjusting the origin, lift up the endmill by using arrow keys to move it up in Z direction.

            Keep VPanel activated, and go to the next step.

        • Making circuit

          0
          After adjustment of the origin, load png files and start cutting.
          Activate iModela Creator (software accompanied with SRM-20) and load files as follows.
          • 3-1.Loading the circuit file

            0
            Select [file]→[open] in iModela Creator, open circuit.imd, and select whole circuit.

            1. Check [square] in [configuration of a cutter] section, and enter 0.4 as thickness of a cutter.
            2. Select foam material in [material] section.
            3. Select Roland SRM-20 in [printer] section.
            4. Press [condition of cutting] and go to the next step.

        • 4. Replacement of an endmill and adjustment of the origin of

          0
          After cutting of circuit is finished, replace the endmill to Endmill ZHS-200 (straight endmill).
          Refer to Step 2 about how to replace an endmill.
          • 4-1.Adjustment of the origin of Z

            0
            You must adjust the origin of Z again after replacement of the endmill.
            Refer to Step 2 about how to do it.

            *Do not adjust the origin of XY. (You do not need to do that because materials did not move)
