What if I’ve already had a successful kickstarter campaign and have a product in small production runs but I’d love to work to get my product in sparkfun’s catalog. Trying to partner with distribution is not easy. Is this platform for that as well?

News - How to Model and 3D Print…
I find running a 6-32 or larger tap and I have no problem using machine screws in raw plastic when I print with a 0.2mm nozzle. Design a standard tapped hole, run a drill bit though it to clean it out and then run a tap though it. Make a very nice clean tapped hole.

I use a automotive spray body filler on PLA and then lightly sand them with a 600 grit wet sand paper. The printed parts look like they were professionally made. Since the Body filler is a primmer as well a light coat of paint and they look like a professionally made part not a 3d printed one.

Thanks for the reply and I look forward to reading more about your companies experience with this machine! You can run my esp programmer if you want to try those parts saves me from hand poping one.
Where do I start with my questions =)
Would be nice to automate this build. I’ve gotten quite fast as hand populating the board with my manual PnP. I can usually stencil and pop the board in 5-6min (34 SMD parts) but when I have to make 100 of them it would be nice to do them automated.
Ohh! I want to know more. I almost bought one last year! I have a Chineese reflow oven (T-962A) and I love it so I’ve been really thinking about the Chinese PnP machines. I currently have a manual pick and place setup with vacuum and tape reel dispensers.

my first order was 7400. It was in July 2006. I bought my first Arduino to control my Xmas lights from a Mac. I had recently been playing with the Parallel port on a PC and wanted a way to control relays from a web page on my Mac instead.
