I picked up a 2'x4' 1/2" plywood handipanel from home depot for the build platform. I decided to cut out a 14" circular platform. I used a scrap piece of wood with two holes drilled in it to trace out a circle- pinning the center with a drill bit.

|Circular plywood platform cut out- trial fitting|
|I used 4-40 blind nuts set into the bottom of the platform to fasten the heated bed in place|
|4-40 Blind nut pulled into place|
|Everything bolted into place|
|Endstop with wire soldered and heat shrink in place|
I drew up and printed some wire clips that snap into the Makerslide aluminum extrusion. I'll upload the models to Thingiverse as soon as the site is back up.

UPS brought some goodies this week- a RAMPS FD printer driver board. I'm hoping to plug it into a UDOO dual core board, and use the assembly as an all-in-one printer controller & driver.

|RAMPS FD out of the anti-static bag. I'm digging the side connectors for the stepper motors.|
|Dual core UDOO|
|All plugged together and ready to roll|
