Its time to wire the electronics with the hardware. Since I am not an electronics guy, I always manage to do a horrible job at wiring stuff. Please mind th mess in the few next photos

Even though I had the wiring figured out previously, this was one of the most tiring job I had to do on the machine. The prototype is running using a standard ATX supply which is plenty powerful for this purpose.
Once the wiring was done the machine was functioning as I had desired it to. The motors provide sufficient torque to move the various parts of the machine. I couldn't resist and slapped on a pen on each of the gantries for a ""Hello World". This also ensured the machines for more than accurate for its intended job.
