I put 2 links for video of the first cut I made.
That's the result. But I found out that X and Y weren't squared at all.
This took me a very long time to decide how to fix it. I did make 2 holes in the frame so I could reach the screws holding the X and Y axis together.
I got it now within 0.01mm. But the ball screw of the X axis has little wobble, which tilts the Z axis about 0.02mm at each turn on X. I crashed it once badly.

After getting lost in the mail for 3 weeks, I received my ordered digital stepper controller KL4042, having some Nema 23 stepper laying around, I did got, that idea, for an digital compressor driven by a stepper for paste deposition.
It's part of my other project, the one for the contest, it's also the reason why I'm so late to present it.
While mounting the first 3 controller I did preview to get a forth axis. Now I just have to screw it in, and connect the cables.
