Announcing: FarmBot Express v1.1 documentation!

As of March 7, 2022, the default version of the Express documentation is for v1.1. If you have an older kit, please use the version picker dropdown menu in the top left of the documentation hub’s navigation to select an older version of the docs.

FarmBot Express is designed to be an affordable and easy-to-use FarmBot for those who want to get setup and running quickly and don’t need all of the features and customization options available with FarmBot Genesis. The driving factors behind the design are simplicity, ease-of-setup, and affordability.

FarmBot Express is available in two sizes: a standard sized model suitable for small yards, greenhouses, classrooms, and research labs; and an XL model suitable for families, larger spaces, multi-class school use, and larger scale R&D.

Model Width Length Area Max Plant Height
Express 1.2m 3m 3.6m2 0.5m
Express XL 2.4m 6m 14.4m2 0.5m

Express and Express XL share many of the same components and assembly steps. This documentation covers the assembly, bill of materials, troubleshooting tips, and more of all sized kits. When certain information only applies to one kit or the other, there will be clear indication.
