If you'd like to donate, there's a button on the top navigation bar.  Your money will go towards day to day expenses like buying PLA filament, fasteners, hardware, and electronic components to be used as fodder for testing.  Unlike an open-source software project, we have real expenses that are currently being payed out of our own pocket, and we don't have millions of dollars of venture capital to burn through.



Although not directly part of FirePick Delta, we wanted to say thanks to Jason Von Nieda for making his OpenPnP project available to all.  He has spent the last few years creating a modular framework for Pick and Place machines, and we wouldn't be where we are today if it weren't for him.

Sunshine Labs

Sunshine Labs specializes in coworking and consultation for hardware startups.  Sunshine Labs was formally started in January 2014, when two community members found their small businesses had outgrown their garages and local hackerspaces (FamiLAB and Melbourne Makerspace).

Inspired by hardware incubators such as in Boston, and NextFab in Philadelphia, they joined together to form Sunshine Labs, a coworking space where you can bring your own equipment, or use the facilities’ equipment to make your ideas a reality.

Sunshine Labs has provided a locus for local hardware startups to receive consultation about their product ideas, access to equipment to make their designs, while helping to give back to the maker and inventor communities of Central Florida and beyond. 

Melbourne Makerspace


Also thanks to everyone at the Melbourne Makerspace, for being awesome and keeping it real.  If you're ever in the spacecoast area of Florida (east of Orlando, on the coast), stop by and say hello, their open houses are Mondays at 7:00 PM.  If you let me know in advance, I'll even bring the $300 pick and place prototype :)

Push Plastic


All of the PLA and ABS filament that goes into FirePick Delta comes from PushPlastic.  They are a small American-based company that sells virgin-plastic in common sizes and colors, at an affordable price.  Don't be fooled by other vendors selling imported, crappy-quality plastic.   I don't have any affiliation with them, other than the fact that they always answer my emails and have bent over backwards to provide outstanding customer service.
