elevator pitch: a 3d printer but for solder paste application on PCBs
@sungo I need the reprap version
@kepstin yes, but the diy home lab version
@djsundog huh, would be cool for small batch project boards. You don't need the 3d, but I suppose a 3d printer frame would give a good start and have adjustable depth - replace the hot end with a solder pump of some sort.
Aligning the PCB for printing would be such a pain :(
@kepstin I'm imagining some computer vision code to get the board positioning offset from whatever 0,0 truly is, but yeah, it'd be totally handy for these tiny ass connector breakout boards I've got a dozen of to solder, for instance
