THIS page is an extremely rough draft. You can help us improve it. (Someday this page will document many of the known-working systems. A few known-working systems are already documented at RepRap Options).

Do not let the size of this page discourage you, you have many electronic choices. At the end of the day you need these fundamental components

  • A Mainboard
  • Stepper Drivers
  • Endstops (Optional, see here)

How you get there is up to you. If you don't want to make these kinda of choices simply follow an "offical" build (Color choices below).

        • Add stuff about Extruder Controlers

These all in one kits let you get up and running the fastest but tend to offer less flexibility in blah blah blah
