    I'm guessing the GoPro? went through the reflow oven on a cold run. Pretty cool seeing the process like that.

    • You got it! I believe most of the video was shot a GoPro 3.

        Gotta make sure you turn off the red flashy lights when in shiny bags in dark boxes in future - gave the game away!

    A really inspiring article for electronic hobbyists like me. I am Alexandru and I am a maker. Right now I am trying to build VisionBot which is a Surface Mount Technology assembly shooter that can be used to place SMD chips onto Printed Circuit Boards for PCBA... Practically the VisionBot machine will enable electrical engineers, hackers and makers just like me to manufacture electronic devices in their own garage. VisionBot is still in the beta testing and in a few months it will be available to the makers through a crowd-funding platform.

    What is new at VisionBot?

    Using advanced Computer Vision VisionBot is avoiding electronical waste and is professionally assembling Printed Circuit Boards. It is estimated that VisionBot will be able to assembly about 75,000 electronic boards per year. There is an automatically calibration using Computer Vision for Feeders, for Fiducials. We also implemented an Vision Inspection.

    VisionBot is also compatibile with standardized files like RS-274X Gerber files but works also with the classical CSV files. VisionBot will enable the dream of many makers who want to turn their homemade prototypes into industrial products. For more details access VisionBot SMT Placement Equipment

    I hope, you will not consider my message a spam. I just found that this is an amazing community for those who love electronics and coding just like me.

    Hi, I am trying to make some boards at home. I got around 20 boards. I couldnt find an affordable company to manufacture it. So I am trying to do it my own. I got only through hole components. I was wondering if I could use stencil and reflow method for it. Please please reply. My mail is Thank you
