Its Alive!!!

Finally got all 3 axes assembled and 3 stepper driver boards made up. I bolted all the electronics to a piece of wood. I used M3 nuts/bolts and short lengths of vinyl tubing as spacers (the same tubing that i used to couple the drive rod to the motor.)

Anyway, I'll let the videos speak for themselves:

It looks Great!!!
Are you just going to use the Arduino or plan on using the present electronics to get every thing running ASAP?
Brilliant, Zach! Great work! :-D
well, technically the motors and motion you see here are generated by the new stepper driver boards.

i plan on finishing the SNAP based Arduino firmware which means actually testing this firmware on a real machine. now that i have a real machine, real electronics, and everything ready to go... i'm pretty much poised to burn through the code in a few extended worksessions.

if everything goes well by next monday i'll have a fully reprap-software compatible system that is something that anyone can easily assemble. SO PUMPED!
Nice one!!! Great videos...
