it must admit - it took a while... :) as far as i understand you use the expansion board and right now you are making the cables yourself, right?

Be careful with the model cooling fans - these are connected in series (two 12V fans powered by the 24V line).

The small 5V fans are using JST connectors, the 12V fans are connected with Molex plugs (AFAIK).

The exact types of the connectors are mentioned in the build manual (search for "Making the y-cables"). With the identifiers from there you should be able to find the correct plugs.

Thanks for you input 8m intsalling you firmware later today/tomorrow.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
