2024-03-07 (Th) RADARBadge Second prototype

The board needed some finishing touches. I struggled to decide how I would make the motor and magnet mounting hardware. The panel that holds the gear motor below the PCB needs to align with the main board's mounting holes. The magnet mounts need to encircle the disc and attach to the gear motor axle. I considered cutting all the necessary parts at home, but that would not scale well and would cost me personally. I considered ordering 3D-printed parts, but I decided to start by ordering shapes cut by the PCB manufacturer.
Second prototype ordered

The earlier prototype was difficult to use because all the hardware crowded the mixing area. I realized it was wiser to connect the motor to the top and keep all the components on the same side. I disassembled the motor bracket, flipped it to the other side, and reconnected everything. Now, I could place large vessels on top without interference.
