How noisy is FarmBot?


For those who are using Farmbot: how noisy is it? Can it be used during night close to your bedroom’s window without disturbing?

Yes and no. The loudest thing by far is the vacuum for seed injection. So you would probably only want that running during the day. We’re working on ways to make it quieter, or find a different vacuum. But right now we’re focused on making sure it all works. Everything else is very quiet and you probably would not even hear it through a closed window. Have you ever heard a 3D printer moving? It sounds very similar to that - the stepper motors sort of “sing” as they accelerate and decelerate.
