Is there BOM anywhere? drawings? I’m interesting in bulding one.

Check for the previous version of Kingraph. It has links to the BOM, assembly instructions, software, etc.

Those plans are no longer being supported, however. It was meant as a proof-of-concept only. It does work, but is not suited for use outside of a test environment (meaning I had to fix it all the time).

This site’s purpose is to gather information to be used in the building of the next prototype.
