Its been a while since we last published an update to the FarmBot Genesis hardware design and the corresponding documentation for it. That’s because we’ve been swamped with our launch campaign, growing our team, and doing other business-ey stuff. But now that all of that work has subsided we’re back on track and making improvements to the hardware design and our step-by-step assembly instructions. Today we’re excited to announce that the v1.0 documentation is now complete! Check it out here: https://farmbot-genesis.readme.io/v1.0/docs.

v1-0-docs

Like all previous versions of documentation, this is our most comprehensive version yet and the one we are the most proud of. Using this resource, we hope that anyone (such as you!) is empowered to build their own FarmBot. Whether that means pre-ordering a kit or making and sourcing all of the individual components yourself, this is the one stop shop for all things FarmBot Genesis. In this version of documentation you will find a whole host of goodies:

  • Step-by-step assembly instructions for every subassembly in FarmBot
  • Comprehensive tech specs for every component
  • Complete bill of materials with prices and recommended suppliers of all components
  • 3D CAD models for every component in various formats
  • 2D CAD drawings of almost every part
  • The ability to see and interact with many of the subassemblies and parts in a 3D browser-based environment
  • Manufacturing files (.DXF and .STL) for the parts you can machine and 3D print yourself
  • New ideas for mods and add-ons to your FarmBot
  • New organizational structure that makes reading the docs faster and easier than ever
  • Improved documentation search
  • Tables of contents on every page!

 

We hope you will find this documentation as high quality and valuable as we do and consider building your own FarmBot from scratch or pre-ordering a kit. Need additional help beyond what is provided in the docs? Strike up a conversation in the forum!
