Dear all this is Salih from Sunday Robotics. It's a small, dynamic, creative, and versatile start-up founded in a 20m2 Office. Our aim is to create Robots and AI that can really change our lives so that we can witness some more majestic developments. But before that, we have smaller-scale products developed for makers and engineers for funding our big goals.

I'd like to introduce our product, ProBUDDY (Project BUDDY) to you on this topic. We are planning to launch a Kickstarter campaign on  11th January 2022 and until then I'll be sharing some info and updates, with your permission, and will be so happy to hear your thoughts and take your feedback.

Best regards.

You're going to spend the next 2.5 months dribbling stuff out and expect us to be here for every excerpt, just to find out what this thing is? You've lost me.

Tell us what it is, what it can do for us. Simples. We don't need the actual thing (yet), just convince us that you are worth following to find out how to get one.

Dear @dunkemhigh thanks for the reply, I've posted the details on ProBUDDY landing page https://www.sundayrobotics.com/probuddy/ (https://www.sundayrobotics.com/probuddy/) and we have an active Instagram account https://www.instagram.com/sundayrobotics_probuddy/ (https://www.instagram.com/sundayrobotics_probuddy/) . You are right, I was just preparing the info for here, will reveal the current state and then would like to share the updates with you guys.

Dear All, let me start giving info about ProBUDDY, I ll do my best and I am new in this forum, just learning the rules and the usage of the platform.

What is ProBUDDY ?
ProBUDDY quickly helps a lot with on-the-desk electronics work. It is a group of helpful items that eases our R&D life. Base Plates, Magnetic Bases, Holders, 3rd Hands, ProBUDDY Racks, Compatible Accessories, Carry Bags and Free 3D Printables Library. The hardware of your project will be built, modified, stored, carried, and switched easily by using all of these items in many combinations.

(https://www.sundayrobotics.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Pbuddy-Components-V4-2048x746.jpg)

Why do we need it? What's the problem solved?
1) While building our projects we all use lots of Breadboards, Arduinos, Raspberry Pi's and such that are connected with lots and lots of cables and things around.. Between them, we use sensitive electrical connections that needs to be electrically and mechanically secured for reliable operation. Most of the time our hardware floats on our R&D desks and it creates unreliability for our project and stress for us.

(https://www.sundayrobotics.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Bottom-left-image-R2-1024x413.jpg)

2) "Working with many projects at the same time on our R&D desks" and "locating and storing the projects" is another issue.

3) When we need to carry our projects between home and school, or lab and office, or even "from one R&D desk to another" things get messy..

(https://www.sundayrobotics.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Top-right-image-R2-1024x413.jpg)

4) Glueing hardware creates its own problems.

What advantages does ProBUDDY bring?
With it, mechanically securing the hardware of our projects becomes very easy. Magnetic bases and holders are so versatile, they are strong and won't let your hardware go even when it's upside down!

(https://www.sundayrobotics.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/ProBUDDY-Upside-Down.jpg)

ProBUDDY lets us use even the vertical surfaces for locating our projects, hang your Project A, Project B and Project C on the wall and start working on Project D on your cleaned R&D desk.

(https://www.sundayrobotics.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/increase-effectiveness-5-6-times.jpg)

With ProBUDDY accessories, we all will have great flexibility while building and working on our projects. Build large projects with Multi-Base Plate configurations, you will be able to use DIN Rails on ProBUDDY Base Plates, You'll have mounting plates, angled working options on Base Plates and so on..

(https://www.sundayrobotics.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Print-Out-free-designs-and-quickly-start-working-on-any-type-of-projects.jpg)

ProBUDDY users will be supported by our Free Printables library. Do you need a "screwdriver stand", "Item box" or "montage plates" for your ProBUDDY? You will find them all in our Printables for ProBUDDY library. A lot of different items are (and will be) available there for you to download easily, print out, and start getting more from your ProBUDDY set. Combinations will be limitless.. ProBUDDY + 3D Printables = Work on your RC Cars, Planes, Electric Skateboards, Plant Watering Projects, Robotics and more by the help of ProBUDDY..

We will be so glad if you contribute and share your thoughts, experiences and any feedback you like.

Best regards, Salih.

Our timeline is and will be like this:

(https://www.sundayrobotics.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Timeline-Square-ProBUDDY-R2-2048x1788.jpg)

I've finished design, prototyping, and even the packaging phases of our ProBUDDY project. We can now afford to do all the manufacturing needed  (Base Plates, Holders, Accessories, Packaging..) but except for the Plastic Bodies of the Magnetic Bases. Currently, we are manufacturing them with 3D Printing but it is slow and expensive. We need extra funding to get plastic injection moulds built and then we can offer Probuddy at affordable prices. Hence we decided to create a KICKSTARTER project on January 2022.

Guys, can you suggest high benefit/cost manufacturers for injection moulding? The image above seems full page, sorry for that, do you know how to make it smaller while using the insert image button?

How do the racks fit in with this? Is it just a way to store many of the bases, or is there some function? I thought maybe you could stack a couple of bases with parts on then connect them vertically, but I can't see that being neat and tidy, so perhaps I've missed something?

Dear @dunkemhigh thanks for your contribution. Magnetic bases with holders hold breadboards, cables and other electronics on base plates, hence whole project can be built on one base plate. This makes the project hardware sturdy, easy to store and carry. Magnetic bases and holders are reusable, easy to build one project, easy to disassemble it and take electronics out quickly and rebuild another project. It's not like gluing the electronics onto smt. A5-sized plate is small and for soldering and for 1-2 module projects, A4 and A3 are larger and enough for many project types.

So, we build project 1, project 2, project 3 on different base plates, 1 base plate for each, then we put them in probuddy rack (our vertical storage unit) 3 Projects (or more) on 3 separate base plates in 1 rack. This saves space and protects the hardware and there will be available room on our R&D desk for other work (Clean desk, no-stress, clear mind :). When we want to work on project 1, we take it out from the rack and put it on our desk, do our work and put it back to the rack easily. Then for example take project 3 from the rack, work on it, and put it back again.

This increases efficiency, racks will be sized to carry 4-20 base plates vertically, hence we can work on 20 different projects on 1 R&D desk at the same time. Probuddy also makes carrying the projects easier. Take the base plate (with the project on it) out of the rack and carry it easily to school, office, lab. Do your work and carry it back to your house easily and safely.

It's also helpful in schools. John, Mark, Tony can store their own projects in the lab vertically without any mess. Everybody can take their project from the rack, do their work, and put it back into the rack for another lecture.

What do you think?

OK, thanks for the explanation.

What do you think?

I am tempted to suggest that it's not part of the kickstarter. There is already a lot of stuff which could make funding tricky: you either have lots of offers with varying numbers of parts to cover all options, or just have a couple of 'kits' which might be too expensive for some potential backers. The racks don't really seem to fit in and I would imagine a large proportion of users would just have a base or two and leave them on a shelf when between projects.

I appreciate that they go some way to saving space, but perhaps they would be better as something to populate a shop front with. Kickstarter backers get the base and holders they want/need then later visit your shop to get more of the parts. At that point they see the racks and figure they're useful because they already have the bases and better know if they need to deal with holding in-progress projects somewhere.

You are right, we are planning to create 6-7 kits as rewards, ranging from small ones from 20 US (for youngsters) to large ones for around 1000 US (for professionals, R&D Offices..) Each kit will have certain amount of base plates, magnetic bases and many kinds of holders, 3rd hands, accessories, racks and carry bags (yes, that's true, lets think about adding racks and bags into the Kickstarter kits or not). Expensive ones will even have custom prints on them, check these out:

That is also true. We hope to sell ProBUDDY kits and items for a time to fund our start-up's sustainability, hence we definitely open an online shop. Yes, after receiving our kits with competitive prices and with many advantages on our Kickstarter campaign on 11.01.2021, everybody will be able to purchase more if they like it and need more items afterwards. And also there are few more ProBUDDY compatible products (sunday powerbanks, elevator probes and elevator analysers and loggers) are in line waiting their turn.

(https://www.sundayrobotics.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Elevator-analyser-1.jpg)

Novadays when we present it, Schools, R&D Companies, Professionals and students say that they like ProBUDDY and they want to purchase it. The situation is very good, but there is an obstacle we can't sell it.. Because we can afford all the manufacturing and packaging except the magnetic holders plastics. Those plastics are  3d printed for now and this is expensive and time-consuming. In order to afford the plastic injection molding for those parts, we are going to launch that Kickstarter event and ask for your help.

We will be sending our first prototypes to influencers, to get their opinion, with the custom prints on Base Plates they like. Would you suggest anyone ?

Is ProBUDDY just for building projects?

No, while ProBUDDY Holders provide many easy-to-mount options for your breadboards and modules, special holder types like the "jumper clamps" mechanically fix jumper cables on base plates to create reliable test setups.

(https://www.sundayrobotics.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/ProBUDDY-Configurations-1B.jpg)

3rd hands offer great flexibility while soldering and holding components for many kinds of operations. You will feel comfortable while fixing, preparing, connecting, soldering, building and testing your hardware in many Configurations.

Advantages of ProBUDDY items
ProBUDDY have Magnetic Bases with thin, transparent & versatile holders. Just put them on the Base Plate and slide 'em.. They will hold Breadboards, Arduinos, Raspberry Pi's and all other modules easily in no time.. Our holders are isolated by nature.. Slots are labeled for precision and transparency let's us see the other side for full confidence.

(https://www.sundayrobotics.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Just-slide-and-hold.jpg)

While others can't, thin ProBUDDY Holders can go in.. Since their simple yet clever and thin design, ProBUDDY holders can hold electronics from places that others can't hold on. Other than our simple holders we also do have spring-loaded versions which turned out to be very effective.

(https://www.sundayrobotics.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Others-vs-ProBUDDY-R5.jpg)

Magnetic holders have soft textile layer beneath them, not to scratch the base plate and to provide smooth movements on it. Moreover, in order to increase surface durability and protect the custom prints, we've also designed a 4 layer coated rock-hard surface for our Base Plates.

Maybe it's a bit offtopic comment, but after watching your last posts I thought that it could be a good addition to your shop (not sure it fits the Kickstart bundles) if you can source some reliable breadboards to offer to your future customers.
After all, sketchy breadboards are a common cause of frustration while doing R&D work.

We've built a free ProBUDDY compatible Printables Library

(https://www.sundayrobotics.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/library-main-image-1.jpg)

Do you need a "screwdriver stand", "Item box" or "montage plates" for your ProBUDDY Kit? You will find them all in our Printables for ProBUDDY library. A lot of different items are (and will be) available there for you to download easily, print out, and start getting more from your ProBUDDY set. Combinations will be limitless..

Here is the link to the library (files are not yet uploaded, will be done really soon): https://www.sundayrobotics.com/probuddy_library/ (https://www.sundayrobotics.com/probuddy_library/)

Could you check the library and suggest any designs ? How can we make it an open source library for everybody's contribution?

Your contributions now worth a lot to our team! Make a comment, suggestion or anything :) Thank you..

Thanks @dunkemhigh, yes because I (and the team) believe in this ProBUDDY project. It's something that really helps people.. A product that we can afford to design, build, commercialize and provide fund for the early stages of our Sunday Robotic's Startup. Yet, ProBUDDY really needs people's opinions and suggestions to evolve.

On the other hand, I think there is something wrong with me or the way I am trying to use this great forum. The majority of great people here are just observing, not contributing :(

Most people do lurk, but that doesn't mean they're not interested. You could tell a stunning joke that would have people laughing in the aisle, but not get a single comment. It's a bit complicated, but generally people saying something to disagree, not agree, and an entire thread of 50 messages all saying 'lol' can be tiresome.

On the plus side for you, no-one has told you this project is rubbish and won't make a dime!

I understand, thank you @dunkemhigh.

(https://www.sundayrobotics.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/ProBUDDY-new-sheets.jpg)

Today I will take the new batch of Base Plate metal sheets (1.2mm thickness) from laser cutting (20xA4 + 20xA3 + 26xA5 sizes). They are now DIN Rail and T Slot Aluminum Mountable, Hangable, Configurable into multi-stage configurations (one or more on top of another plate).. Now, these sheets will be sent to painting, printing and other coatings. We will be building lots of projects on them, sending custom printed ones to influencers and friends from instagram  and youtube (some of them already sent me their great logos to be printed on the Base Plates of their ProBUDDY kits, one of the good aspects of this is to get to know those productive, creative makers and engineers, we hopefully may cooperate with them on Robotics someday soon), starting to introduce ProBUDDY to local schools and companies and donate some to students.

Do you have any videos?

Dear @ledtester thanks, not at the moment, planning and scripting some for the Kickstarter page for the launch (11.01.2021). Do you think, starting to shoot videos asap would be better? 
Title: Re: ProBUDDY by Sunday Robotics
Post by: salihkanber on November 06, 2021, 09:03:25 am
Yes - videos would help explain what the product is, how it works, how you would use it, how robust it is, etc.

Just an example... you say that you can mount components upside down, and a natural question people will have is how strongly are the components held. Can it survive bumps and shaking, etc.? In a video you can actually demonstrate how tightly bound the components are to the board.

You are right, thanks, ok we will prepare and release an explanation video this week.

To answer your question for now, I made a quick lift and let-go threshold test with our magnetic bases. We've finalized their designs and prepared their bom, one of them is labeled as 1 2 10/3 (1xscrew mountable, 2xN35 grade neodymium magnets with 10mm diameter and 3mm thickness each). It has a let-go threshold of 1-1.2Kg.  The other is labeled as 2 3 10/3 (2xscrew mountable, 3xN35 grade neodymium magnets with 10mm diameter and 3mm thickness each). It has a let-go threshold of 1.8-2Kg. When 3-4 of them are used to hold a breadboard or any module, when horizontal or vertical storage, they provide a pretty large safety margin (For heavier components like large transformers etc the magnetic bases should be used carefully).

(https://www.sundayrobotics.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/Carry-capacity-of-base-plates.jpg)

ProBUDDY is not designed to be used in shaky or high acceleration environments when vertical or upside-down. It's more than fine when working in normal horizontal operation or from desk to wall, wall to desk actions. ProBUDDY will be also fine to store the projects vertically, It will be suitable to carry projects horizontally. I think nobody will locate ProBUDDY or use it upside down, but yes, since we used the words "even upside down" I think we should add "we don't recommend the upside down usage".

Thank you @ledtester for your contribution, please share your feedback anytime.

I'm not sure I get the point of this product nor why you would call yourself a robotics company.   From my perspective you have a fancy fixture board and some magnetically attached components, neither is revolutionary.   Fixture boards have been in use for decades, probably over a century now.   Magnets are nice and frankly better than ever but you don't always want them around electronics you are building up.   Further I see no point at all in using paper sizes to describe the boards.   In any event screw on rubber feet should be something that your fixture plates support.

One area where I could see a similar approach working is for people in business servicing very low volume needs.   Lets say you need to build 5-10, probably less, instruments for a lab, being able to move the prototype to a product quickly would be nice, but here you can't have a bunch of stuff stuck together with magnets.   You need a snap together solution or screw mounting of components.   In such a case the fixture boards would need to integrate naturally with some sort of professional housing.   That is your plates either slip into or become part of the box.   The idea here is a system that supports rapid transfer from prototype to a shipable device.

Now my comment about the "A" size boards.   The problem here is that the electronics world still revolves around the 19" rack with devices that are full rack width half rack width, one third & etc.   Taking into account the need to put a product in a box, even if it sits on a rack shelf, it still needs to be mindful of these dimensions.   I have no problem with metric dimensions as long as the resultant products don't mess with other hardware on these racks.    As an aside these days with electronics so small, we really could use a micro rack standard.   In any event I hope you see my point it would be better if the boards where sized for quick implementation compatible with common instrumentation.   So a one third rack sized instrument would need a housing of less than about 150.25 mm in width so a fixture board would have to be less than that in width.   That might work for A5 but A4 doesn't even fit half rack well.

I have to agree that trying to get this off the ground with 3D printed parts is a non starter.   This is where it might help to support DIN rail on your fixture boards.   The reason here is that you can get a variety of snap together carriers for printed circuit boards really cheap.   This would significantly reduce your need for hard tooling for the variety of devices you would want to mount on the fixture boards.   The other plus here is that your users have access to complete DIN rail products.   By the way that hard tooling should support parts that can be screwed down for permanent mounting, all on well documented pitches.   So think about how you can leverage existing products from different industries as a way to get off the ground.

I fully realize that much of this doesn't apply for designers targeting high volume products.   That is an entirely different business in my mind.   I'm leaning towards the developer that needs the low resistance way to solving a customers problem.   Often that means taking a proto board / developers board and shoving it in a box with whatever support hardware was required.

That's an interesting viewpoint and one I hadn't considered appropriate for this - I am leaning more towards repair, test and build, so it would be a temporary solution just to hold stuff in place while you attack it (and, hence, one reason I fail to see the full benefit of the racks, although I suppose you might have a couple of projects on the go).

Dear @wizard69 thanks for contributing. I took my notes of the good points I've seen in your feedback.

We call ourselves, Sunday Robotics, a robotic company because we are. Lara, Munir, Safkan are the names of our robots that we are currently working on and developing know-how.

(https://www.sundayrobotics.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/Safkan-Munir-Lara.jpg)

Being started few months ago, our company needs time, funding and a better team to commercialize them. Hence, like every early-stage start-up, there is a death valley ahead of us.

Start----->Death Valley---->Commercialisation and monetization of Robotic Products.

Check this out; https://www.investopedia.com/terms/d/death-valley-curve.asp (https://www.investopedia.com/terms/d/death-valley-curve.asp)

But luckily, we have another small scale product that is really helpful, people demand it and can provide us some sustainable funding: ProBUDDY kits. We created it for our own lab and we are using it, we can do multiple R&D projects on 1 desk, our team members can build their projects on it, work on the desk and when they are done working that time, they put it on the wall for the next time. That increased our office & labs efficiency 5-6 times, no more breadboards, arduinos floating around, no more glueing and no more "cant re-use the modules, they are glued, and we have to buy new breadboards and arduinos at each projects", projects look and work and presented to the customer professionaly. Small scale to large scale, for a product for 1 pcs prototoype , for a prototype to thousands of mass production units, we use ProBUDDY kits on first stages of development. We also dont need anything else while soldering, testing.. etc. I am using "we" all the time because we are our only customer now, we didnt commercialise it yet, we need funding for the plastic injection, hence launch our Kickstarter campaign on 11.01.2022.

Yes I admit, its not "Revolutionary" or "Magical" or "Nothing like this on the market" kind of product (Let me know if I mention it as revolutionary somewhere and I correct the phrase). But I assure you, on top of its competitors, with the properties we added (versatility, cost effectiveness, design, storage options, 3d design library etc) now it is really and truly a helpful product.

The sizing of Base Plates is set to well-known paper sizes, so is the naming of ProBUDDY kits (A5 Kit, A4, A3 kit). Each kit will have some number of Magnetic Bases and Holders with many shapes, we do have the spring-loaded versions. We want more and more youngsters and people start innovating with low stress and high efficiency. So instead of more professional terminology, we use common sizes that everybody know. To attract more people into electronics, we are now manufacturing our Base Plates with beautiful and cool prints on them.

(https://www.sundayrobotics.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/probuddy-gif.gif)

Soon we will even create Base Plates with very different shapes like transformers heads. But, of course, we are now also targeting the professionals, Schools, R&D companies, engineers, makers will use our kits.. Our term "ProBUDDY Racks" is different than industry sized racks. The confusion will be ended when we create the prototype and videos, sorry for that.

Sizing is not an issue. We can manufacture any apropriate sizes and shapes for professionals very soon. We are ready to reshape and revise our product with the feedback from our customers, it's the only way that Sunday Robotics can survive. Plus to that, for professionals, ProBUDDY kits will be just a start and a base. There are ProBUDDY compatible products like ELEVATOR PROBES, ANALYSERS, LOGGERS and POWERBANKS and they are waiting in the line.

ProBUDDY Kits will not be suitable for "prototype inside the device enclosure" stage. It will be used in the early "breadboarding and arduinoing" stage. They are also very helpful when fixing, soldering, testing and working on different projects. Everything will be more clear when we release our explanation videos.

@wizard69 and @dunkemhigh thank you for contributing.

We began videoshooting as well, producing gifs. Here is an example showing the ugly truth about gluing the hardware :)

I can assure you we will be supplying the best versions of ProBUDDY Kits in our Kickstarter Campaign (much better than the review versions, sorry :)

Post by: salihkanber on January 15, 2022, 08:29:38 am
Meanwhile, I'd like to share our experience with Kickstarter applications.

Before applying for the campaign, we are trying to decrease reward prices as low as possible and at the end of the campaign we are hoping to cover plastic injection molds and then go to mass production.

Spreading word is important and what people do is to go to the Kickstarter agencies and collaborate with them. I talked to few and their demand is huge. Around 750-1K$ upfront (which is ok) then 3-4k for advertising and then %30 from the total fund backed from their audience! That means from total fund (rewards + shipment payments, yes) -{%10 (Kickstarter + C.Card Handlers fee) + %30 Agency fee} = The start up is left with around %60 of total fund (All the costs and shipments and everything will be paid from this) hoping to survive and finish the project successfully. Which seems very hard and makes whole Kickstarter system almost inefficient.

Thats why we are now asking everybody to spread the word.. We have to reach more people and let them know that ProBUDDY Kits will be on Kickstarter 01 February 2022. Professionals say that building email subscribers list is important, our subscription form is on our webpage: https://www.sundayrobotics.com/probuddy/ (https://www.sundayrobotics.com/probuddy/)

Your Support is Important and Valuable to us

We have started up Sunday Robotics with big goals in Robotics, ProBUDDY Kits will be a good start for us to pass the death valley ahead (first years for Start  Up until achieving sustainable income). With this campaign we will be sourcing our very first funding and those will be very important and valuable to us.

With your support in this campaign, you will be putting very first Bricks into Sunday Robotics' foundation and this will not be forgotten. We will be providing you with Silver and Golden Supporter Certificates with unique numbers and dates which will be in our database as long as Sunday Robotics survives.

Because of the Kickstarter rules we can't say much but if Sunday Robotics succeeds, these certificates will bring you much more than these rewards! We promise!

Let me guess - those are the ones wanting you to pay them to provide the list facilities?

Don't know about anyone else, but if I were on your list you'd be already in my spam trap and I'd make a point of ignoring your kickstarter (or, indeed, anything else you did). IMO, you want a single big hit on the internet's consciousness right as the stuff becomes available - having a persistent presence over weeks or months, and particularly without necessary info like prices, just inoculates your potential clients against you so they're tired and pissed with you before you've even got the product in front of them.

I'm sorry I don't know how to market effectively (otherwise I'd be rich), but what you've posted here (and particularly the latest stuff) is good. You just don't want to wear people out prematurely.

Personally, Kickstarter works for me when I stumble across a project. Perhaps a post here sends me off to there, or there is a mention somewhere on the web and I am intrigued. At that point I want to know what it is, what I get, and (this is really important) how much it will cost me. I will either buy it there and then or forget about it completely.

I believe you have a period when the project is live and people can place orders. That's the time to push it in the various ways (posting somewhere like this, 'influencers', etc). I think many of your sales will be opportunistic, so give people the opportunity to actually place an order. You'll even have people that order in a fit of interest and then have second thoughts but can't be bothered to retract the order - admittedly, not many but you've lost those by  pushing too soon, I think.

Dear @dunkemhigh thanks for the thoughts. You are right, I think campaign creators are feeling pressure to gather large audience right before the campaign. Kickstarter algorithm brings projects that do well in the first hour and first day.

I didnt push any emails to anyone yet :) Was just kindly sharing updates here under this little topic, I started asking help under the posts but ok I'll only write the webpage adress then :)

You are the best contributor of our topic here, would you like a Gold or a Silver Supporter Certificate?

That's very generous of you, thanks, but without knowing the price of the kits I don't know if I'm in the market for one :)

Thanks man, I've saved a Gold one for you, will send you someday.. I've released the prices on the product page at rewards section: https://www.sundayrobotics.com/probuddy/ (https://www.sundayrobotics.com/probuddy/)

I was gonna but then I decided not to put them here, not to seem very pushy :) May be a little bit scared too :)

I know this is my first post so it's a little weird, but Jon from Undercover Electrics is a friend/co-worker of mine and lead me here. Jon brought his ProBuddy into work the other day and I was really impressed with how nice it was, the finish on the board is really good and looks like it will hold up well to many years of use. All the little magnet base holders where really nice, but maybe a little over the top with all the size markings. I'm not really sure what the value is of all the size markings on the holders? The option to 3d print parts for this (supported by the manufacture) gives you even more options, plus you're not buying parts you aren't going to use!

The two parts I would like to see all the boards get are the lifter pins and 3rd hands (Jon's didn't come with them).

I was a little disappointed that they pushed the Kickstarter back but I get it, waiting for the launch on the 1st. I will be one of the first to support and if the time lines up it will be in the first hour.

Thank you so much! Its an honor to see a professional friend of our Customer No:1 Jonathan sees the ProBUDDY Kit and gives the crowd positive feedback! He told me that you are a harness and electronics builder for racing teams? Awesome, I really want to get in contact with you.

So.. TODAY (01 February) is the day! We would be glad if you come to Kickstarter at 10am EST (6pm GMT+3) and back our ProBUDDY Kits project!

Guys I was blocked recently but today I can write, that is strange, there might be a mistake. But also there is a chance that these can also be my last words again :) So, what I want to tell you is that I am and the whole Sunday Robotics team is thankful to you for your patience with us, the support you provide, for over 9000 views on this topic. We, Sunday Robotics will be developing cool robotic systems and will be sharing the tools, techniques and codes we developed for ourselves with the crowd.

Stay motivated, stay healthy. There are great tech people among you, I hope we would find chance to work together someday. My email is salih@sundayrobotics.com. Take care!

ProBUDDY Locator Plates (Compatible with A4 & A3 size Base Plates) have been added to REWARDS 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 in ProBUDDY Kits campaign. Our early backers will receive their new addition for sure!

What are they?

While working on your projects you will use a number of ProBUDDY's on your Base Plates right? Where to store the ProBUDDYs that are not being used at that moment? The answer is: ProBUDDY Locator plates.

Some of them are small, but every upgrade counts and makes difference when you are in the start-up phase.  Here are they;

*We've rented a second neighbour office! Now we have 2, 1st of them is for office + electronics R&D, 2nd one is for manufacturing, testing and packaging.
*We've purchased ESD Protection equipment and created a ESD Free manufacturing space in our office.
*We've created a Playstation 4 corner in our office (TEKKEN 7 is our favorite, great way to releive stress)
*We've purchased a professional label printer for our product packages.
*We've purchased a UPS for our 3D Printers, we can print 7/24 now.
*We've upgraded our "kettle" into a "tea machine".

Few days left in our campaign, we will appreciate if you support us more by spreading the word.

Our ProBUDDY Kits are one of the best equipments in our lab.

Those aluminium rails strike me as a great idea to mount stuff on the wall. Suppose that multimeter had a slot mount on the back and you just clipped it onto the rail (there would need to be some more of them to be really useful).

Perhaps a pegboard is the way to do that, but the ally rails look a lot nicer :)

Very nice product, brilliant way to fund further effort at your company! Looks like kickstarter effort was fully funded ...

I'll order a la carte from the probuddykits.com site ... in support of our children's homeschooling efforts on electronics & such.

Thanks again for your efforts!

Dear dunkemhigh, yes they are very useful, we use those T Slot Alu Profiles a lot. Actually, better than mounting on the wall, they are mounted on the desk easily with our 3d Printed adapters. No damage on the wall or on the desk. I added the adapter's STL files to ProBUDDY 3D Printables library: https://www.sundayrobotics.com/probuddy_library/ (https://www.sundayrobotics.com/probuddy_library/)

Yes, lets add a holder design to the library for the multimeters too.. Thanks for the contribution  :-+

!! Warning: this topic has not been posted in for at least 120 days. Unless you're sure you want to reply, please consider starting a new topic. !!! Yes I know that :)

Hey guys this is Salih.. We faced many bumps and obstacles during our manufacturing tasks right after our Kickstarter Campaign, one of which, and the latest, is me not being able to handle a life changing event properly, in the second half of August 2022. I had my first child.. My daughter!..

Just wanted to share this with you too..
