It should be considered as an experimental and early released product developed by the Innovation and Robotics Department.
Final releases will be published on http://diwo.bq.com & http://diwo.bq.com/montaje-del-printbot-crab/
BQ is one of the leaders in European technology. Their objective is to help people understand technology, inspire them to use it and develop it. To do this they are committed to education in technology, a DIY philosophy, and Open Source. BQ applies this philosophy to its products (smartphones, 3D printers, and robotics, amongst others) as well as its software solutions, working towards making technology a tool that improves the world and the life of their users.
All the things and all the published material cannot be considered as a final product of BQ and BQ takes no responsibility of its use.
It must be considered as an experimental and early released product developed by the Innovation and Robotics Department staff with the intention to share it and test it as soon as possible within the community.
