But what IS it? ;)

I believe you are obligated to make it sing something in three-part microstepping harmony now, just because you can. n.n

Also, bravo.

Fox goes where?

Oh, by the way, there's improved designs for the plastruder module on Thingiverse which hopefully will involve less tweaking and dremelling than the one I'm using.

Ooooh. Sweet! I haven't even really put thought to the plastruder part yet, but this is good to see. I have the Mk3 circuit board and the geared motor, but I don't have the nichrome wire and nozzle such.

I pretty much just gave in and decided that the motors and electronics wouldn't be generally available for most folks, and will still end up being mail-order. Though most folks won't have a laser cutter, either, so this entire "Making it from parts from a hardware store" idea is looking kinda dodgy at this point.

But if you mail-order the electronics, and if you have a laser cutter, then by gum you should be able to make my design from parts from almost any ACE hardware! :)
