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
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
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
Greetings from germany!
