Full PCB Batch Arrived

100 PCBs are now in my room ready to be split. I found out PCB guillotines are very expensive, so I'm going to see if I can cut them with a Dremel or paper cutter. I hope at least one of these methods works.

Final PCB

Assembled without the case as a sort of firmware dev board, everything works. Going to get some price quotes for the large batch now.

PCB Troubleshooting & Finished Case

Good news, the writer looks and feels wonderful when assembled. Bad news, I've encountered a series of problems with this PCB. Right off the bat, it seemed like there was no bootloader that should have been already programmed to the microcontroller. Then when I went to try putting on the bootloader myself, the whole device was never detected at all. Turns out there was a missing fuse intended to protect the boardĀ from a bad USB port or any similar shorts. It was listed in the PCB files that were sent but not placed on the board. Not a huge deal...
