Three years of research and development later, we’re proud to present to you FarmBot Genesis
These black anodized beams serve as both the primary structural element of FarmBot and its linear guide system, allowing precise movements in the X, Y, and Z directions.

Plates and Brackets
Our plates and brackets are stamped and machined out of high grade aluminum alloys. Then they are tumble polished to remove burrs, sandblasted to remove surface defects, and anodized to achieve a premium quality aesthetic and feel. Please note that some non-structural components may be made of plastic in future kits.

Motors, Electronics, and Wiring
Our custom Farmduino board and four NEMA 17 stepper motors with rotary encoders power FarmBot’s movements, while the Raspberry Pi 3 serves as the web-connected brain.

The v1.2 plastic components have been injection molded with ABS or precision machined from Delrin. They are both tough and able to withstand UV rays.
