Rostock 3D It moved for the first time..

Last night I did a test of the electronics and it Moved !!!!!
It was fully assembled just enough to get the motors and carriage to move as a test. I will finish wiring in the stop sensors tonight and see if I can suss out what motor to wire to what axis as it does not have a specific X,Y or Z and also no wiring docs as far as I can find.
My plan is to hopefully have it drawing in two D with a pencil by the end of the weekend.

  1. Hey Bill!

    First of all, interesting read here when you (me) building a Rostock yourself :)

    I read this post and I'm at "this step" wondering what you concluded? Did you have any guide building it?

    Had a look in your log on Google groups and I saw Stuart Mitchell in there, that's the guy I bought my plastics from :)

    Anyways, hope you can make a quick reply, cheers!
