Putting it all together
Didn't get to run The Monster last night, but fixed a few more things with the Arduino "shield", added connectors for the optional wires, mounted the extruder holder, moved the extruder stepper motor driver to where it wouldn't hit the ball bearings, added connectors to the wires to the shield, replaced the Cat5 wire to the extruder stepper motor driver with a flat cable wired up similar to the others, but some more organised connectors on the temperature sensor mini-board, and put everything in place, arranging the wires so they shouldn't get in the way of anything. This weekend I will try to get it running, so I can have it ready to show off (read "use as a warning tale") at #MakeMunich.
