Good choice with the Duet and Duex. I hear they are worth the higher price.
Yes, I agree. Unfortunately upgrading my small printer I went with the Lerdge board which is a PITA, so much so am ditching it for a Duet. Both printers will then have the same boards. Already thinking of calling the small one Red Panda as its black with red accents. Any excuse to put a different start up banner on the screen :)

:) - just wait.

I think I have found my replacement for labels on this printer to satisfy my ocd, braided cable sleeves in white.

There is life in the Giant Panda. Got all the steppers wired in and tried out a bit on movement.

Now I have the fun part of all the wiring looms this afternoon. Reels of braiding and heat shrink tubing to keep it all tidy.
