Quoted from TechnicalSteam:
Solution seems to be easy one. Stern should partner with an on demand board manufacturer or create a service for on demand printing. If the cost is reasonable you should be able to log in to a website and have these parts created. Stern retains trade secrets and home owners are happy.
Not sure how feasible that is.
Print Parts on Demand - That is awesome sauce.. Hopefully reality in 5 years
Why would they do that when they can charge $999 for a Spike 2 MPU board (cost likely <$50), or 100s for node boards (cost likely <$10 for most)?
