Abstract

A limiting factor in putting a conductive image on a 3.dimensional surface of a molded part such as a unique concept printed circuit board has been the complex imaging systems needed. For instance holography, multiplane projection or sequential contaot printing are techniques that could achieve image transfer onto a 3-dimensional object. An opto-mechanlcal fixture is described where the image transfer from master image to receiver is made using simple Contact or off contact imaging techniques on a photo sensitive silver salt coated surface or a photo sensitive polymer coated surface.
