Yesterday we finished the assembling of the metal printer. We have attached the torch to the printer, we have positioned the endstops and connected the first cables. The result looks like this:

So now we can start programming and refining the printer to make it a whole. We are, as we speak, building a housing for the electronics of the 3d printer and connecting the electronics of the welder with the electronics of the printer. Now laptops appear at our fully settled workplace and programming begins.
