Existing Open Source Designs


Minimum Viable Product

- Fast

- Cheap to operate

- Tapeless design

- No part bin filling;large variety and quantity of parts in integrated storage

- Just Hit Print Style Operation

- Works with one or more robotic arms

- integrates well with a small conveyor belt

Basic Design

Robotic Arm

- Used to move the end effectors around the circuit

- Can be quite small due to the light nature of its work

- We may want it to bo faster than the usual so it can jut around the cicruit board
