@Jonathan_Buford , you are crazy. $200? I decided to see what else you could get for that, and the printrboard from printrbot is $129. Also, I did a quick search for reprap RP parts, and it looks like the going rate for a full Prusa i2 (ignoring i3 for now, because it has a big, expensive custom part that is not RP) RP parts set for about $70 (wow, I remember waiting for a set of Sells Mendel RP parts to drop below $1000). A set of MendelMax RP parts seems to go for a bit more. So basically, assuming the #Makibox turns out to be a usable printer capable of making reprap parts, you could buy it, use it to print a set of Mendel parts, pull the printrboard out to control the mendel and scrap the rest, and still break even compared to buying a printrboard + RP parts.
The Azteeg X1 for $70 + SD8825 for $46 = $116 (with shipping, probably less than getting 4x Pololu A4988 for $39.80, OTOH, Pololu has a price break at 5 units, so getting a fifth one as a spare costs negative five cents) is superior to the printrboard, but I wanted to compare apples to apples. Also, with the alternatives currently available, I STRONGLY recommend against building any of the A-frame mendel derivatives (including anything with “Mendel”, “Huxley” or “Prusa” in the name other than a Mendel90 or a Prusa i3), but I figured the i2 would still be the most fair comparison.
