Overview

Thanks to Ryan O'Hara at Ohararp.com for this information, he provides a stencil cutting service and is recommended!

You'll need:

  1. A laser cutter
  2. Kapton film, I like the 2 mil thick 1 ft square sheets from McMaster-Carr
  3. Solder paste such as Kester No-Clean
Software:

  1. PCB layout software (well, thats how I do it) - this example will use EagleCAD
  2. Pentalogix ViewMate Gerber viewer software
  3. PDFCreator or some other free PDF printer
