I just got access to an SMT machine in a DIY fablab. I have a board that has about 50 unique components that I wish to assemble and test drive this new machine. I intend to make 20 of these boards. How should I go about it?
Do I load the 15 of the 50 components and have them put on the 20 boards or cycle through the components and complete one board at a time? My boards are not panelized since I was planning on assembling them by hand so I think would either have to take the boards out or the components. Looking for any practical advice on this.
