I had in my possession some X3D conductive ABS. The question begged: Could I create a 3D printed PCB that didn’t use a soldering iron? Yes! Well, sort of..
I certainly learned a lot making this video but the conductive filament isn’t quite up to the task, based on my experiences and those I reviewed of others.
This filament was supplied to me free of charge by my filament sponsor X3D. It was my choice to make the video and all opinions expressed are my own.
