The OrdBot Project
Quality and appearance are probably the top two priorities I have for this printer. Ease of assembly and flexibility for future improvements are secondary priorities (as I'd like to get printing before very long and I'd like to be able to improve it). Then price is the third priority.
I bought many of the parts in kits. Below I've listed the sources of the parts.
Panucatt's Azteeg X3 v1.1
- Connectors:Screw Terminals [Terminal Blocks]
- Expansion Shield:V1.1 Cover Shield]

I chose Panucatt for their reputation on the buildlog.net forums, my personal interaction with Roy (the owner) and the nice finished look of the board.
