MTM Snap - Z and X and Y Axis Working

Jonathan Ward came down from MIT to help us with our MTM snap machine. We were missing some critical parts, so he helped us get what we had in stock to work with his design. At this point the machine is working - but we need to replace the individual stepper boards with the shield (we need the increased capacitence and we think we may have cooked the boards a bit with some initial faulty wiring.) We are also waiting for some thrust bearings to come in from McMaster Carr. They should be in shortly and I will publish an update.
