This is a circuit made with the vinylcutter. The project involved designing the circuit, cutting it out of copper sticker, glueing it on paper, stuffing the electronic components and programming the micro controller to make the LEDs light up in a pattern. Step by step instructions how to do this will follow soon, here are some pictures of the process.

Step 1: designing the circuit

The design was based on the Charlieplexing array output board from the Fab Academy. These files provided a good basis to start from. I designed the circuit that contains an ATtiny 44 micro controller in Eagle. 
u can try yr local fabric store. mcmastercarr 4 every thing u might need <br>
Nice. <br> <br>Can you tell us what vinyl cutter you used and where you obtained the copper sticker?
Hi Mikey, <br><br>Thanks for your message. I used the Roland GX24 in Fablab Amsterdam:<br>http://fablab.waag.org/machine/vinyl-cutter<br>There are some nice tips and tricks documented at their website as well.<br><br>The copper foil can be ordered at Digikey:<br>http://parts.digikey.com/1/parts-kws/3m-copper-foil-1181<br><br>Hope this helps!<br>Cheers<br>Astrid
