3D printed CNC does now 3D print for itself for the very first time

Didn’t expected that the improvised setup was able to generate anything but spaghetti at this stage: Improvised (not fixed) print bed, insanely hight print speed, no dialed in parameters. To my surprise it generated reasonable shapes.
Note: all electronics are connected via a 40pin standard connector so I can easily swap controller boxes from Grbl to Marlin and vice versa. Power for 3d-Print hotend and Laser engraver are provided by 4 linex of the 40 line ribon cable. Higher voltages and currents for Spindles are provided by the gimbal that also carries the filament spools.
