Add this project from JinGen Lim to our ongoing catalog of PCB art (see some ‘painting’ artworks here and Facebook group here). The tips & lessons learnt are especially useful heads-up for anyone interested in exploring PCBs for alternative design purposes!
A while ago, I chanced upon a satirical “boy scout badge” featuring the text “Centered vertically in CSS” by @mrgan.
I had little experience with fabric, but building a lapel out of PCB seemed like something that might just work. PCBs are typically built with extremely high tolerances for its copper and mask layers and still acceptably accurate for the silkscreen.
Hopefully this post documenting my build process will be helpful if you’d like to give PCB lapel designs a shot!
