ELECRONICS, MUAHAHAHAHA

Over the last 2 weeks I’ve been slowly soldering away over a hot iron.  All the electronics are finished except for the last stepper motor board, which I’ll probably finish tonight or tomorrow morning.  I had problems burning the firmware to the motherboard, but I haven’t tried burning firmware to the extruder controller just yet so I’m not sure if thats an issue with my computer or the board itself.  Also I’m missing 2 10-pin IDC headers for the stepper boards.  This makes me sad, but I will push onward.

SMT soldering is REALLY awesome.  I literally got to pan-fry my electronics as if I were cooking up some eggs for breakfast.  XLNT.

See the flickr set for more photos of the electronics assembly (plus, a photo of me wearing a super sexy magnifying visor :)   http://www.flickr.com/photos/sdavisk/sets/72157620860440069/
