Sorry for the slow response. I've been super busy... Life happens.
Anyhow I scored a killer deal on a Philips assembleon, and a small wave solder machine. I've pretty much refurbished both of them back to a usable condition. the Assembleon only has 24k hours on her. BUT damn it was rode hard and put away wet. It still needs a few things replaced. But that can wait for now. SO yes
a solid pick and place machine to start with for board assembly.
As for the pcb. It has a mash-up of all the same things your board has just consolidated a bit. I needed a bit more customization for use in my projects. There are 2 different boards here, an Ardino Mega2560 compatible board with all of the interfacing for the usual, shift lights, buttons, LCD out, boost controller circuit, and 2 Xbee slots. Used an FTDI chip for the usb to serial connection, to avoid BS. BUT, with that, it requires ICSP to re-program, nbd. I've included a few pictures of the new cases. (revisions are needed on everything, it's always something) The mega shield is still a WIP. That should have a full OBDII interpreter chip, the chip done by OBDPRO's, circuit done by me. It should support all protocols. Open-logger, built-in bluetooth, and all the same-ol as the original mUI product. A refined product using mostly SMD technology.
As for design files... I'm not sure what I'll be releasing with the beta version. Most likely just the schematic, for now... Not sure I'll be releasing much else. A BIG YES to fritzing... I'd rather invest my time in what I feel is a better quality product, of which is worthy of my time. (to each his own)
Case design was all done in freecad. What a wonderful product! I cannot speak highly enough of this platform. My goodness. It bit of a learning curve.. BUT the end result is a 100% completed project using open-source software(s). So the question really should be, what can 'paid-for' do that 'free' cannot? FOSS AND DONE! I'm not sure if anyone can appreciate such a feat. EVEN the generated G-code run by the Bridge-port/accurite vertical mill was a post-process generated by linuxcnc. So if anyone understands what that means... No paid-for garbage was used. NO Altium/Eagle/Autodesk/Solidworks/mastercam, ALL that crap can pack sand. I'd gladly send them all a spoon. So they can eat my you-know-what. (not a fan of paid for software, if you can tell)
Many, many, hours of love here.... Long live Multi-Display!
I'll make sure of it... some pics
