Hi! I would be grateful for a second opinion regarding upgrading my farmbot.
I have an unbuilt v1.0 kit (I know, I’m slacking…) and after reading the updates for the most recent versions, I would like to order the additional parts to upgrade to version 1.3. I mainly want to do this to use the new Farmduino board instead of RAMPS. I’m writing this post because I would like assistance knowing what new parts I need for the upgrade. It looks like most/all of the new parts required are related to the Farmduino - including the board itself, the enclosure box, and all the cables with new connectors.
This post discusses future plans for a comprehensive online store which would include upgrade kits. That would be very useful, but until then I’m consulting the version changelog
It looks like these are the things I will need to replace:
- Electronics box
- Farmduino board
- Data cable
- Solenoid valve cable
- Vacuum pump cable
- Power supply (cable no longer separate)
- Universal Tool Mount Cable
- Encoder Cables
- Motor cable
So I have two basic questions:
- Does this look like a pretty comprehensive list?
- Am I correct in determining that most of the work will simply be substituting these new parts instead of the corresponding v1.0 ones?
