Hi

After many trials and spoiling a lot paint, thinner, photoresist... I
eventually
managed to successively silk-screen print my first module front plates à
la DOTCOM.

Check it out at : http://yusynth.net/technique/silk.html

It's not perfect, yet I'm getting to something acceptable.
It was more complicated and hard work than I thought in the first
place but now that I have found the good exposure times, the right
tricks to spread the paint on the screen it looks more feasible.
What I dislike more in this technique is the time spent to clean
all the mess when I am finished with printing Sad

I will put all the construction details (schemos and PCB as well as the
silk-screens)
for the VC-LFO and DUAL GATE DELAY modules, on my site on early january
so you can DIY them.
These two modules should be of interest for most of you DOTCOMers,
since these are missing in the
DOTCOM product line.

Just to clarify things before you ask, I am not selling and I will not
sell modules, it's just a
hobby of mine. Smile

Here are some links where you will find interesting infos :
A very comprehensive guide for silk-screening (replace skate-board by
front-panel !) :

Ha, I remember that :-) and all that terrible thinner all the time ...

The results look quite good on the pictures, nice job !

Please let us know when you finished your web site on this, I'd like to read about the details (like how you did the positioning, how you got the the pant distrubuted evenly etc.).
