Charles - I am about to kick off a project much like what you have done. Are you willing to discuss what logic boards you are using and what it takes to switch from CNC to 3D??
Randy Buster
Charles Modrich
Of course, the electronics I used was an arduino mega 2560 with a Ramps 1.4 electronics board. These should be reflected in the bill of materials document (.csv) under the digital files section. If you have any other questions feel free to ask!

Did you build your own extruder or buy a turn key design?

This is the Extruder that I used: http://tinyurl.com/nbpmznf Would not recommend that one again though, it clogs way too much for my liking. I did have to make my own fan setup though, I created a fan shroud to attach a dc cooling fan aimed at the print surface.
