cupcake + gen 4 + hbp + mk7 + 0027alpha ==> works!

Well, it’s working, and quite nicely. I don’t have the print range of a TOM, but I have quality, and that’s what I was after.

The trick to getting it all working was replacing the Z stepper that shipped with Cupcake #235 and replacing it with a more powerful one from Lin Engineering (which required a new metric pulley from SDPSI). The Z-table is now quite zippy and does not stall like the old one did.

Photos and parts lists to be posted everything’s a scattered mess in the aftermath of Pittsburgh MiniMaker Faire, the lasersaur build, fixing my mom’s laptop, and a thousand other papercuts.
