improved z-axis

With the exception of the extruder and a lens, all was taken off the z-axis today. This has lightened the load and cantilever problems and its moving much more freely now. I’ve mounted the mirrors in a fixed position and I’ve placed the RAMPS electronics on this as its more convenient for the cable runs, particularly the y one which has a long range.

I’ve rescued a beer can for the opto flags, and the axes need to be squared and calibrated…. but I’m keen to start working on the hotend and melt some PLA!!!
