##ELECTRONICS of the printer:
the wiring of the nema23 with 8 wires was somehow simple. I had to solder the white-red to the white-blue, since blue and red are a coil. Same for the white-green white-black, soldered them together and in the stepper driver had them as another coil. But, since I had to invert the stepper motors to work inverted (since they’re in mirror position), The green wire of one stepper joined the black of the other and the black with the green. These mixed wires make a coil (A) and the Blue and the Red (B) were not mixed, straight red from one side with red from the other side, blue with blue, and these another coil (B as already mentioned).

I'm writing a diary of the printer. It is on paper. I like writing. I'll eventually
post images of the pages. Not necessarily lazy but in fact because I like to show off when the calligraphy comes out clean ;)

-**Parallel heating elements**
It worked out greatly. The Current peak increased obviously to heat up but also the speed to reach the aim temp.
I am using 2 heating elements with only one thermistor. For lack of time, I used 2 heating blocks (Alu) put together
-**PCB milling for wiring Drivers to Axis (4 wires, Gnd, Enable, Direction, Step)**
-**PCB milling of end stop with 5k - 10k ohms. Both resistors work**
In the X i was having problems with interference so I used 5k ohms instead of 10k. The real problem was actually that the wires were wrapped together with the ones of the X axis stepper and that coused interference. Now analyse is the 5k is problematic in the future.

These capacitive sensors read magnetic materials great! Mild-Steel is great, Aluminium works well also.
They come with 3 wires, Gnd, VCC and Signal. For signal it needs 5V, for Gnd and VCC 12V.
