yeah i hadd them made because i couldn't find anything commercially availlable http://community.axoloti.com/t/4x1-rgb-led-ring-rotary-encoder-pcb-bulk-order/5662
yeah i love the recent rise of pcb panel use, good looking, easy to make, affordable... whats not to like. never did any myself, also because i still struggle in Eagle too much. and yes FPE is a stable. but what happened is after spending a year on this synth and on the fablab lasercutter i finally gave in to my old dream of having a CNC milling machine. finished setting it up last week and now doing some measuring, tuning and first cuts. and then i wanna make basically all parts, wood body, aluminum frontplates etc etc on that. which in turn means i have to stick to engraving and laquer infills, and can't do fancy color prints like FPE, but hey. diy.
now this is what i came for. so good.
