toys arrived

The past few weeks I’ve been waiting patiently for electronics, motors etc.  The RAMPS diy kit and Pololu drivers arrived 2 days ago so I’ve soldered that up.

The motors/hotend/PLA/printbed/thermistors arrived yesterday. Today I’ve prepared an ATX power supply to drive the RAMPS and motors by putting a switch on the green “power on” wire, a 10k pot/LED on the grey “power ok” wire so I know its happy and another 10k pot/LED on a 5V red wire to simulate a load so its happy!

I’ve also laser cut some mounts for the motors. I’ll test the motors in the coming days…
