Through researching techniques to print Bare Conductive onto card I stumbled across a method that would allow me to embed the paint into arcylic.
I found that by etching 50% into a material and then filling the void with ink is a very clean and quick method of making conductive tracks.
Note how the tracks are totally flush with the surface.
It may look messy but this is one of the best things I’ve found with this project.
The conductive ink this process allows for a much deeper track, resulting in a much lower resistance. Screen printing on the other hand would create fine and more resistive track. With a lower resistance, in theory I could use short traces of this ink track as copper replacement for interfacing basic microelectronic functionality on thin materials.
