In order to shorten the time it takes for you to assemble your FarmBot hardware, follow these preliminary steps.
This is the estimated time it will take for assembly preparation.
Organize your parts
When you first open up your FarmBot hardware package, pull out all of the component bags so that you develop a full idea for what’s included, and so that you can place them on a table or the floor in locations that make sense to you.
For many, grouping parts by type helps with locating them quickly later on. For example: place all your screws in one area, all your plates in another, all your electronics in another, etc.
