Tim from Boston, MA, uploaded his design for a pick & place head for a CNC machine to Thingiverse.

This is a vacuum pick-and-place head design for automated electronic assembly. It features a stepper-driven rotary head with Luer-Lock port for interchangeable needles, and a feature for attachment of an “eyeball” style Webcam for optical placement (you can modify to support your own favorite camera). Vacuum is provided to the head via flex (fishpump) tubing.

I’d love to see a video of this project in action!
