    im looking into building the Big Box and was trying to decide on what controller to get ive seen alot of good reviews on the duet wifi controller but was wondering how easy is it to set up. I have a little more then basic knowledge on installing firmware but it about stops their. Im not very good at rewriting code so was wondering if this is something that is easy to get it up and running? I also have the arduino due but wasnt sure if that would be a good option as well?

    The Duet WiFi is surprisingly easy to set up. I can't recommend it enough.

    Building a BigBox from scratch will be a challenge but it can be done. Potti5 recently did this and I am in the early phases of helping a friend do the same thing, so it can be done :)

    Compared with the Rumba firmware, the Duet Wifi firmware is much easier and faster to configure. Just connect to the printer via wifi, alter the config files and reboot. I wouldn't want to go back to Rumba or any other board.
