Kraken arrived today.
I'm really amazed how small it is.

Waiting for my 400 steps nema 17 motors.
In the meantime I start designing the extruder carrier

Have you had much difficulty in getting the Rumba board going? I'm not at that stage yet, I plan to do things like building the carriage, the new carrier etc first, but I'm anticipating the rumba being tricky.

Stepper.jpg
Stepper
Got the 0.9 stepper motors today
Purpose enhance my x & y axis resolution


Did build up the Kraken (Thermistors and Heaters) and
started to draw the fixture plate; This is really a pain as I was only able to import the baseplate SLT to 3ds and than export to SAT and than import in Inventor fusion.
Afully slow to work with this imported file.
This will take days for me to draw it,......

Extruder plate design done (at least for now).
I used Satoer's E3D basplate and added my extruder plate to his design.
Thanks Satoer for your great E3D design!
