(Farmbot) Meet FarmBot, the world's first open-source CNC farming machine. FarmBot Genesis is the first FarmBot to be designed, prototyped, and manufactured. Genesis is designed to be a flexible FarmBot foundation for experimentation, prototyping, and hacking. The driving factors behind the design are simplicity, manufacturability, scalability, and hackability.

Genesis is a small scale FarmBot primarily constructed from V-Slot aluminum extrusions and aluminum plates and brackets. Genesis is driven by NEMA 17 stepper motors, an Arduino Mega with a RAMPS shield, and a Raspberry Pi 3 host computer. These electronics were chosen for their great availability, support, and usage in the DIY 3D printer world.

Genesis can vary in size from a planting area as little as 1m2 to greater than 50m2, while accommodating a maximum plant height of about 1m. With modifications to some of the structural component sizes and an alternative X-direction drive system, the Genesis concept could likely scale up to a 1000m2 planting area and a maximum plant height greater than 2m.
