Suppliers / Lieferanten in DACH (Germany / Switzerland / Austria)

Hi @ll,

first, I’d like to thank @duesentrieb (and the other guys) for sharing their supplier list. I’m currently planning to build up a new farmbot in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany, hence I used your BOM as a “blueprint” with some minor modifications :wink:

But let me please start with some short explanations on the design principles I tried to follow:
1.) I’ll build the plates, brackets and all 3D printed stuff myself
2.) prefer parts available in the EU to avoid unnecessary costs for customs and delivery
3.) “good” must not be necessarily expensive, but I don’t want to pay twice because of a *** product :wink:
4.) make as few changes on the 3D models as possible and stick to the standard
5.) read everything at least twice (by the way, this is a good advice for life *g*)

So, here is my personal BOM which should be compliant to farmbot v1.2. Currently I would have to pay something around 1200€ (except of the material for the 3D printer and the aluminum plate).

Is something missing? Opinions, suggestions (but also warnings) are heartily invited :slight_smile:

Greetings from germany!

Hi Sascha,

Wenn du Lust hast kann ich dich in die SLACK-Gruppe von Farmbot Europe einladen. Da sind noch mehr Leute aus der D/A/CH drin. Dazu bräuchte ich nur deine Mailadresse. Die könntest du mir dann einfach per PN schicken.

Ansonsten ist die Kontaktliste vielleicht interessant für dich:

Gruß Jonas

Hi there,
I’m a little late to the party. I’m a Member of a german Makerspace and we want to build a FarmBot. Does anyone know a Supplyer in Germany or the EU? Thanks in Advance for any reaction.

Hey schaechi,
there are only three options at this time:

  • purchase a complete kit in the FamBot online shop
  • purchase only parts, that you can’t get here
  • build an earlier version of the bot which includes parts that are common in the maker scene so you can get them pretty easy and cheap locally

you could check in the BOM files in this topic, there are some suppliers listed. Maybe some of them are already outdated, but I believe its a good start.
