We got two axis working and nearly calibrating (rotation and x), a gear bearing replaced, and  software humming along and communicating with iMac. We finally were able to build upward from our plastic foundation. The extruder and all z axis stuff will be suspended from a framework of 1/16″ aluminum angle stock – and it’s 3/4″ off the floor so the bottom electronics aren’t dragging anymore.
