The Genesis Gantry

Rigid and lightweight, the Genesis Gantry is constructed from durable aluminum extrusions and 5mm thick connecting plates. Coupled with powerful NEMA 17 stepper motors, the system can precisely position tools in the XYZ space with millimeter accuracy.

Setup, Customize, and Control FarmBot from any Device

Powerfully Flexible

Advanced software features give you complete control

Drag & Drop Farming

Graphically design your farm by dragging and dropping plants into the map. The game-like interface is learned in just a few minutes so you’ll be growing in no time. Plants are automatically spaced and growing regimens can be applied upon planting.

Growing Regimens

Build complete regimens for taking care of a plant throughout its lifetime by scheduling sequences to run when a plant is a certain age. Regimens can be reused, saving you time and effort during replanting.

Sequence Building

Quickly and easily create custom sequences of operations to take full advantage of your hardware – no programming is required. Simply drag and drop basic operations and other sequences together, adjust the parameters to your liking, and save.

Real-Time Control

Move FarmBot and operate its tools in real-time with the manual controls. Next time friends are over, pull out your phone for a quick and impressive demo!

Hacker Friendly

FarmBot ships with the most common electronics of the DIY world: The Raspberry Pi 2 and Arduino Mega 2560. These platforms work seamlessly with the FarmBot software right out of the box and each are backed by a thriving community that can help you hack.
