I’ve been looking for a project on OSH Park to sink my teeth into. I’ve been soldering random Chinese unassembled kits from AliExpress but I don’t want to buy another SMD practice board or a dice randomizer
My main goals are to have fun by practicing manual manufacturing by hand and learn how to take an open source project like yours from documents, to parts ordered, to assembled board, and project implementation.
I came across this project and thought it would be a really fun thing to build. I’m a little out of my element here so I’m trying to gather my bearings. What I’d like to do is get a run of the board from OSH Park, send the BOM Mouser/DigiKey to give me a quote, get the components in, solder it together, flash the firmware and begin playing with it.
Does this sound like a reasonable approach to going about this project? Have I missed any tutorials or step through guides somewhere that might help me?
