Z Axis Stepper Report

We got the Z axis stepper motor working on command. We had a spare 3-way switch lying around and a limit switch from an old Amstrad printer. We hooked 'em up and used a modified stepper2 code on a broken pic to control the motor.

We've finally got round to labelling the motors, so now everyone can see what Vik's talking about.

Ran into a problem with the stepper motors: They get hot. Fast. In the testing stage, this hasn't triggered any more problems (Like Polymorph motor mounts melting) yet. I might link them to a small heat sink soon.

Ash & Vik :v)
