    At the end of the wiring instructions I found two sets of wires left. Both are Black & Red connected to the cables shown. Anyone know where they go ?

    If Miasmic is right, it's probably these -

    Do you have a raspberry pi? Could be PI Power.
    Also left print fan looks like its missing a cable thought mine appears black and white.

    PT100 senors and electronics bay fan is also red and black though should be able to trace those easy enough.

    The rest of your board I cant see in that photo.



    Also for the future it makes it easier if you label all your wires :)

    Out of interest why did you choose to plug in Z that way?.

    The same as the rest, I was thinking of taking the plug off z though and going direct like you. Twice the motors have turned out of sync and I'm not sure if it's the connection or the motor

    Oh, thought I remembered there being only one set of header pins for Z so I Ferruled the ends together, probably didn't really pay attention to how everyone else did it lol. Better connection this way too.
