mass produced boards
I've got a team of people building RepRaps in the San Diego area. We are building Arduino Mega shield boards similar to the Pololu Electronics specified here:
We are building in an extra stepper axis for people who want to experiment with dual extruder print heads or motorized belts. We want to fund a large run of boards. We would like to have the design professionally manufactured. This would mean very high quality boards at a low price. I plan on restricting the minimum component size to 0805. These are easily reworkable by human hands.
We want to fund the effort through the Open Hardware Bank.
The more parties interested in these boards the easier it will be to finance them. If you would be interested in purchasing one of these boards, please email me at brian dot korsedal at gmail dot com. I'll keep you in the loop on our progress.
If you would like to contribute or review the design before it is manufactured, please keep scanning blog posts. As the design matures, I'll post design files and ask for feedback from the community.
