Despite all the talk of scavenging for parts, there were a few components I decided to get anyways. A lot of this was ordered before figuring out just what sort of theme I wanted from this project. All but one motor wound up not being used (the purpose of the one used motor will soon become clear). An extruder, while entirely possible to carve from scratch, would have been far too much effort put in just to make a point. The arduino and stepper drivers were very much still required.
