Circuit board design is complete!

The first version of the circuit board is complete!!!! This is my first time using KiCAD and I suspect there will be a lot of random issues, especially with things like hole size. So I'm going to get this fabricated and then we'll see what happens.

Manually routing wires is really hard!! But at the same time, it's a little zen. Easy to get lost in the routine.

The good news however is that I can use the general dimensions to finish my 3d printing design. Knowing there will be a 3M mounting hole, and the approximate dimensions, helps a lot.

In the meantime, the wheels arrive tomorrow! It'll be fun to come up with a strategy to mount them to my stepper motors.
