Sourcing Components

by ANAVI Technology

Following the successful end of this campaign we immediately started manufacturing and sourcing components. The acrylic enclosures and cardboard boxes for ANAVI Macro Pad 8 are ready and we received them this week.

The acrylic enclosures were designed using the free and open source tools OpenSCAD and InkScape. The source files are available on GitHub. The laser cutting was done by local company in a near-by town in Bulgaria. The thickness of each acrylic enclosure is 2mm. After removing the blue protective films on both sides of the enclosure it will become transparent.

All ANAVI Macro Pad 8 kits will be packaged in these eco-friendly recyclable cardboard boxes. A small factory in north Bulgaria made them by special request in 3 different sizes appropriate for all items.

In the meantime the manufacturing of the gold-plated printed circuit boards (PCB) has started in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, EU. We expect the first batch in about 3 weeks.

The next step is sourcing Microchip ATmega32U4 components from the Mouser warehouse in Texas, USA. After that we have a long TODO list. We will proceed with surface-mount technology (SMT) assembly, printing stickers, flashing the boards, testing and finally packaging. It is a very long way and we will keep you regularly updated with our progress.

Thanks,
Leon
