Fun build!

Built two. Used sockets on the second one which works out much better. Can someone tell me where to get the firmware? All the references I've found have cryptic information that means nothing to me. I need simple and plain language instructions, please.

Matches the description

The build guide is definitely short and gives only the very minimal information. Assembling the kit and soldering everything together is not hard, but finding out how to flash the right firmware is a bit more tricky if like me you are not familiar with GitHub and coding in general...
Apart from that the product matches the description and it works. I can note however that the base plate came with burnt marks which won't go away. (Just esthetic but still...)

Thanks for the excellent review Thibaud. The bottom plate you mentioned has white protective plastic on the acrylic that can be removed by peeling it off.

Insufficient information to build

The build guide section has no guide. On github the instructions are so short as to not answer most common questions you may have. Very difficult.

The build guide linked on the product page shows with pictures and clear steps on how the few components need to be installed. It is a very quick and easy build.The build guide can be found here https://github.com/keebd/thepaintbrush/tree/main/hardware/v5#build-instructions
