Cost of R&D

Development, specifically prototyping can be expensive, but in some instances it just becomes ridiculous.  Went to Communica today to get most of the components I need to assemble my electronics.  Got most of it, but not any 0402 type SMT resistors.  Why?  Because they are ONLY sold in 10k reels.  Absolutely no exceptions.

Great.  Nice work Communica.

Next player, RS components.  I found everything I needed, in moderate quantities, surprisingly not too much more expensive, and it will be available in 4-6 working days.

Minor stumbling block, but nothing serious 😉

At least I will have everything I need to assemble the RAMPS main shield board.  More Later.
