MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
Used to place very tiny components onto circuit boards. I needed to do a small production run of some circuit boards that used SMD components. These are really small, so using tweezers to place them became somewhat tedious.
After doing some research, I learned about manual pick and place machines, and decided to build one. You can find more information here: http://trains.socha.com/2014/07/building-fsr-circuit-boards.html
You'll find a complete parts list, and instructions, on my blog:
Remember to come back and post what you've printed as Make.
It's good for the designer and the community (that means you)!
To post a Make, come back to this Thing and click Post a Make.
Or, you can use the Thingiverse Mobile app found on
and the Apple App Store.
