 {{:​milling_machine.jpg?​nolink&​400 |}}Here at The Hive, we have a suite of tools made by LPKF that enable students to fabricate printed circuit boards (PCBs). Students go through a three-step training process to gain access to the tools, after which they can use the equipment and our materials free of charge whenever The Hive is open. {{:​milling_machine.jpg?​nolink&​400 |}}Here at The Hive, we have a suite of tools made by LPKF that enable students to fabricate printed circuit boards (PCBs).
