Wiring FoamcubeWiring the Cube itself is pretty straightforward. Each steppermotor has 4 wires with connectors that plug straight into the controllerbox. (2 stepper motors have extension wires attached). The 2 power-leads for the hotwire attach to the 2 vertical guide rail and is connected to the back of the controller. Note that the DIY kit does not contain cable-tracks. These are only installed on pre-built machines (Netherlands and Belgium only).
