Do you know PCB design ? The Smoothie project needs your help !
Don’t know PCB design but still want to help ? Please re-share this to your PCB-designing friends
The Smoothie project is working hard on the next iteration of it’s hardware ( http://smoothieware.org/blog:13 ).
Some major changes include going to a Cortex-M4 chip, better stepper drivers, and playing with FPGAs.
We are also working on a system that’d allow you to add infinite extruders to your board ( https://is.gd/peaDqc )
We’ve got the PCB design needs covered on all that so far.
However, we also plan on another addition to the system : a comprehensive set of extension boards.
Need to add servos, a thermocouple, a raspi zero, Wifi to your board ?
We want to have a comprehensive set of easy to use, plug-and-play boards that people can wire to their Smoothieboard to do pretty much anything they want.
And we need people to help us do the PCB design on those boards.
We have written a spec for a first set of boards : https://is.gd/720xlx ( please don’t hesitate to give us ideas for more boards ).
If you like PCB design, and want to help the Smoothie project move forward, please don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get you started.
