Progress Report

Its been to long since the last update testing is proceeding slowly localization is improving, rotation is still a problem. Increasing reliability has been one of the  goals  and improving the design to achieve this requires a 3D printer so i can make the custom gears and brackets. So i started making the printer that can double as a milling machine for milling parts and PCBs.
The printer uses draw runner as sliders they work rather well the NEMA 17 stepper motors may be a bit small but they will do for testing later they can be used in the base as steering motors
