New cable wiring and connectors

Not much progress on the electronics recently because I've been slowly converting designs and my existing boards to use the new cable wiring.

Pictured is the current design of the main interface board that I put together this morning. During the rebuilds I have also switched to a different type of connector. I think these should be fairly readily reprappable and they do a good job of preventing you from putting things in backwards. They're also moderately cheap.

How's the extruder controller?

I've just finished the 3rd axis controller, so I'm ready to start work on the extruder board conversion if you'd rather be doing something else?

If you've done it, let me know and I'll test the build process.

Okey dokey, what kind of pin connectors are those? :-)
Argh! Connectors! I hates 'em.

I'm using 0.1" pitch sockets on the board - chopped up IC socket.

Vik :v)
