Day 6 Progress - It's Alive!

I did not have time at the end of the day on Friday to proceed to powering up, so I stopped in on Saturday night to give it a spin. Initially I had problems with the computer finding the 'Bot because of a problem with the USB, but I after I loaded up to date software from the web, there was no problem.

I applied the lithium grease to the racks and moved through the X, Y and Z axes using both numerical and keyboard commands. Tested the e-stops.

Nothing caught on fire, which is a plus.
