Tool for speeding plant seeding up. It's simple and works well.
We also have other open-source tools for farming in the pipeline, such as drop seeders, vacuum seeders etc:
Bill Of Materials [BOM:
-SLA Printer such as photon
-3mm Acrylic for scraper plate
-SLA resin [tougher the better we recommend ZZZ]
-12mm Length m3 bolts and nuts [Stainless button head preferred]
-Printer type: Sla Printer
-Material: Blu resin by Siraya Tech
-Support/Rafts: No print directly on the build plate
-Spacing: Print 66 parts on the bed in one go with 0.5mm in-between parts
-The spikes in the images are 30mm, but there are a range of depths depending on your needs included. Solid ones included for those using non resin printers.
Lens Type: 2" for perfect size holes
Putting the thing together:
This tool is made to be two parts that are bolted together, do not glue the whole assembly together or you won't be able to open it up to replace a spike. If you break a spike split the tool into its two halves, remove the spike and replace with one of the spare ones.
-Push nuts into wooden plate Number 1, and glue plate Number 2 to back of plate one using bolts to centre the pieces.
-Glue together the Top plate number 3 and the vertical supports [part number 4] for compressing.
Wait for the glue to set
-Take the cured and set Spikes and push them thru the holes in plates 1 and two.
-Bolt whole assembly together.

We are releasing useful farming tools open source because most commercial ones don't fit our needs or are too expensive. If you're using this thing for yourself please feel free to download and use the hell out of it. Please give us a tip a few bucks if the tool is helpful for you.
However, if you are downloading to sell these parts then we believe we should both make some profit, these dibblers usually sell for around $200. If you want to make these and sell them there is a flat fee/charge of $20 per unit and for this, we can customise the size, spacing, depth and logo for you etc.
