And combining them into instruments yet stranger...

The electronics for the printer are not extraordinary – a set of 4 pololu stepper drivers wired to an arduino microcontroller. Originally, both the endstops and the arduino shields were wired by veroboard, however I found the standard veroboard configurations offered by the reprap wiki to be rather physically weak and ill fit for experimentation. After a while I switched over to breadboard, but that’s not to say I won’t return to pcb after getting the printer to print some circuitry.
