Our machine shipped with loose homing blocks so we needed to recalibrate the machine from scratch, it’s a little scary but we’re glad we know how to do this now – it’s working perfectly. Here are some videos and some photos of our machine actually picking up parts of the reel and placing them on a circuit board, woo!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. That. Is. So. COOL!

    p.s. good lighting, btw. 🙂

  2. Sweet! Playing with one in Tokyo last week really convinced me to take the plunge … manually assembling ~10 SMT boards is doable, but it becomes very cost-uneffective after that point, especially if or if you have more than 25 or so components.

    It was sickening to watch how quickly this thing can finish a board at full speed compared to what it takes me by hand. 🙂

    So, does it actually solder or attach the SMDs in any way or do they just sit there waiting for the solder?

  4. Dudes. So. Awesome.
