It moves - in 3D

 I now have movement in all three directions at the same time, after some futzing with the Z axis.  Here is proof:

The noise in the background is the lasercutter.  You can faintly hear the motor noise if you know what to listen for.

Find, test, fix and mount opto endstops.
Talk to Dieter about right screw for extruder.
Or go to and buy a full extruder for ~€75 (without motor).
Mount extruder and go! :)
