    Thanks Guys the build is a little slow ATM while parts dribble in. I hope to get into it full on over the next few weeks.

    I have decided on a few of the electronics and I have 3x Nema 23 0.9deg(400 steps/rev) 127.5oz.in arriving tomorrow. I am going to start with a MKS Gen v1.4 board and drive the Nema 23's with TB6560 Drivers The Nema 17's on the X axis and extruder will have DRV8825 drivers.

    Everything I have done to date, as in yesterday has been added to the build page. Hmm maybe I should do it here?

    Anyway the build is mocked up with the 3D printed test plates while await for the aluminum plates to be machined.

    I am printing off some temp 3d parts to make a simple "one motor to belt drive 2 leadscrews" idea as a test and because I only have one TB6560 driver for the Z at this time. Plus it would be interesting to see it go.

    I will start wiring the motors. One good thing about the MKS Gen 1.4 is that it has pins for external drivers already and I don't have to make up a way to pin into the normal Driver socket.
