I would like to share some pictures of the partial assembly process here in the Netherlands. Things went well and we only had 2 fails that need a closer look. The rest of the boards were flashed and tested. The firmware loaded is just the simple Arduino sketch from the getting started page. It doesn't require a sensor, just a motor will do. It will get you started to do more interesting things.
For the assembly of the through hole parts a jig was used to be sure the final product looks nice and tidy with straight connectors:
After close inspection and testing the boards are ready for shipment!
Until next time,
