Jigsolve: nozzle mounting

We’re waiting for parts to be delivered from our suppliers, and since the website is moving smoothly and tutorials are getting written I’ve taken a few days to prototype mounting systems for the pick and place nozzle. Above are some of the test prints.

I’ll probably leave it open-faced and zap-strap around the parts to hold them in place while still being accessible. The next step is to mount them on a system that can be raised and lowered. Then that system has to mount on the gantry and I can finally get back to lifting a jigsaw piece.

The biggest question right now is which way to point the web camera. I think straight down, but still able to see the nozzle tip is the best. I suspect the camera should NOT move up/down, to make it easier to aim the nozzle.
