CAD Models

FarmBot Genesis was designed in Onshape, allowing you to have full access to view, copy, edit, and export all of the source 3D CAD models for free from any computer or mobile device! Simply click the links below to access the various assemblies and other resources.

We recommend getting a free Onshape account

That's because everything except for viewing requires you to have one. Sign up at Onshape.com.

Copying and modifying parts

When you click any of the links above, you will be shown our original copy of the FarmBot CAD files. In order to make any changes, you need to make your own copy. To do so, you will need to first make a free Onshape account. Then you can press “Make a copy” in the top left of the Onshape workspace. Onshape will copy the entire Workspace into a new document (owned by you) which will include all of the parts, drawings, assemblies, and other files.

Please note: when Onshape opens up your copy of the workspace, it might open a Part Studio named “Screw Hole Templates” by default, which is a fairly empty looking Part Studio. To find and open another Part Studio in the Workspace, press the button in the lower left of the screen to open the Tab Manager. Then find the Part Studio you want by looking through the folders or using the search box at the top of the Tab Manager panel.

Exporting parts

To export a part into another format (such as .STL for 3D printing), simply right-click the part and press "Export". Note that you will need an Onshape account to do this. However, you do not need to make a copy of the workspace in order to export.
