Can you laser cut solder paste stencils from Mylar?
Lets find out if you can laser cut SMD solder paste stencils from 5mil mylar sheets.
This is where I got my Mylar from locally in Australia...
My plan is to make affordable stencils that I can include in my Neo7Segment kits that I will be selling on tindie, and I've heard of others that have used a product called Mylar and a sharp art knife to hand make basic solder paste stencils...
... but I have a perfectly good laser cutter, so lets find out if the two will play nicely together!
I mean, burning polyester with a laser beam? What could possibly go wrong? :D
