I'm currently looking to find more efficient ways to fabricate versions of the electronic circuit, but still trying to keep manufacturing at a human scale. The electronic circuit features mostly through-hole components to make soldering easier for anyone around the world. With most of the modern world moved to surface-mount components, I wonder if I'm headed in the wrong direction. I think that through-hole components are much more rugged and easier to repair, but I wonder if this is the right direction for the design. What do you think?
