PCB Art - Pushing the Limits of Industrial Manufacturing
Saar Drimer creates PCB art. Combining engineering and artistic skills, Drimer produces beautiful circuit boards that push the boundaries of traditional electronics design. He teamed up with PCB manufacturer Eurocircuits to manufacture his designs. At first the collaboration was bumpy. Drimer was frustrated with the limitations imposed by the industrial manufacturing process. At Eurocircuits, Drimer’s unconventional designs earned him the nickname troublemaker. But over the years the designer and the manufacturer grew closer by learning from each other’s point of view. I spoke to both Eurocircuits’ Managing Partner Dirk Stans and Saar Drimer about their partnership. From these two conversations a common theme emerges. Both men are on a mission to make electronics design more accessible and bring color to the industry.
