I love it and am so bummed I somehow missed it at the gathering.

Is it for self-purchase only or do you have kits for sale?

Thanks, still hoping somebody comes up with a video of one. At the moment it is only for self-purchase. It is meant as a promotion for which makes it easier for people to purchase but once I fix the bugs and make a new version I might be convinced to sell some kits as well.

hoied mitenand,

had long discussions in private messages about repackacking kits…

the kitnic platform is really super! it’s something that hasnt been around yet, just grabbing the core parts of kits from other repositories and then make it easy available for other groups to get the material.

i uploaded our recent output from the diy-CAD session in hamamatsu.

i would love to see people using these outputs for more workshops!

how is the BOM being updated? @kaspar?
Take added the digikey parts and it’s in the repo now, but not yet visible in kitnic.


@dusjagr I was hoping you would jump on the thread otherwise I would have linked your Gaer Laempli in. Thanks for describing the idea behind Kitnic better than I could.

Right now I have to trigger a re-build in order to update. I did so recently but “Digikey” is misspelled so it doesn’t parse that bit of the BOM. :confused:
