I took over this project from my son and have just about everything in place (water pressure reducer, tools, frame paint, and the camera mount to go). Should have it done this weekend.
The unit is based on a 1.2 and has the Raspberry/Arduino controller.
It runs super smooth and I paid a lot of attention to the rail straightness to make it so. Cables are labeled on both ends and I’ve enclosed the water solenoid rather than have it exposed. I upgraded the power supply (better quality) and the Buck adapter (cooler unit) as well.
Why am I selling? I’m a robotics nerd, not a gardener. My “fun” was building this machine. Love the idea of a green thumb, and even, eating better, but alas, the heavy lifting of assembling, tuning, troubleshooting is over and I’m moving on to rebuilding an airplane.
I’ve “upgraded” the motor controllers to the “silent” units and printed a couple of the parts/tools myself.
I’m in Austin, Texas and can deliver anywhere within about 150mi. Even Houston. I’ll include an hour of training (even though, these things are super easy.). I can’t ship this though - it’s just too big.
Post questions here and if interested, we’ll get connected! (Can we DM here in the forum?)
