Genesis v1.7 Documentation Now Available!

Over the last few weeks we've completely rewritten the Genesis documentation for our upcoming v1.7 release!

First up in the new docs is the change log, showing all of the changes we made to FarmBot Genesis since the last version. Of note: Genesis and Genesis XL v1.7 will come 90% pre-assembled in the box, substantially reducing setup time to just a few hours.

Genesis and Genesis XL v1.7 also feature completely redesigned track extrusions. These new extrusions are less than half the weight of the previous track extrusions and are designed to mount directly on top of a wood raised bed without the need for track joining or end plates.

The new design also removes the need for separate plastic cable carrier supports, instead relying on an integrated wooden cable carrier support attached to the side of the raised bed.

This new track design is also much easier and faster to assemble than previous versions of the Genesis tracks due to the significant reduction in part count. The new design also saves significantly on manufacturing cost and shipping weight and volume.

Updated assembly instructions

The new assembly instructions are significantly shorter and faster to follow thanks to the kit coming mostly pre-assembled. We estimate the assembly time to be just 3 hours for Genesis and 4 hours for XL.
