PC Board CAM Software and Prototyping Kit
PC Board CAM software allows you to turn your MDX machine into a PC Board manufacturing solution. Using your PC Board designs from other PC Board Design packages you can import your manufacturing file into PC Board CAM and quickly and easily create the information the Roland MDX machines need to make your PC Boards.

How It Works

PC Board CAM writes instructions for the Roland milling machine to create the PC board design. It works very easily and follows your design you created in your PC Board Design software. The MDX creates a circuit by engraving around each circuit path with a fine point tool onto conventional copper clad PCB board. This process is called isolation engraving. While not electronically necessary, it is also possible to remove the unused copper to provide an excellent "prototype" of a conventional printed circuit board. The software will also allow the holes to be drilled and the circuit board profile to be milled out. It is possible to take a fully finished board from the machine, engraved, drilled and ready to solder.

Step by Step Process
1. Import your file from your PC Board design software
2. Set your machine x,y origin reference
3. Calculate the contours (one button) to isolate your circuits
4. Save your cutting file
5. Send the cutting file to your machine
