Sneak Preview: DIY SMT Pick & Place Machine with OpenPnP

I will present that project at the Embedded Computing Conference 2018 (June 5th), both in a conference talk and have the machine in the exhibition area.

The machine is based on OpenPnP framework, and is not finished yet, and I have published status updates on Twitter. It uses mostly standard components, special parts have been 3D printed or produced with a laser cutter.

Teardown is an event put on by Crowd Supply in association with Make+Think+Code @ PNCA. You can think of Teardown as live-action Crowd Supply, but with fewer cardboard boxes and packing peanuts. We’ll be bringing together hardware aficionados from around the world to celebrate, inspect, create, and, of course, tear down hardware. There will be long-time Crowd Supply creators and backers, as well as people we’re meeting for the first time. There will be hardware, art, food, drink, puzzles, workshops, tutorials, talks, music, field trips, and friends. Most of all, there will be ideas and projects to explore and inspire. We hope you’ll be there too!
