== FYI everyone. It seems to be printing really well now. I do wish i knew what was causing it to be screwy but i suspect at this point i'll never know.
 
Thanks Boxzy team. ==
 
 
It appears to have made no difference except to waste a heap of my time. Some part somewhere in this process must be faulty (or I guess multiple parts). Perhaps the PSU is faulty? Any way to test it?
 
About 1/2 way through the print it decided to screw up on x and y axis. For all I know it also screwed up Z but that is harder to tell.

I might be moving back to Australia and it's hard to tell if it's even worth shipping this over. It can't actually 3d print anything properly, plus I'd need to buy a 240V PSU for it. I'm not game to let it try and CNC anything while it's this unreliable. I haven't heard anything from the Boxzy team regarding the missing parts of the pledges. Haven't heard much of anything at all. This seems to be shaping up as just a failed kickstarter in general. It's just super disappointing to see what could have been a great device end up useless because its defining feature (accuracy) is actually not a feature of it. Instead of a 6 micron accuracy, mine is closer to 600.
 
Still looking for ideas. I can put the original driver boards back again but seeing they had the same problem, and its happening on more than one axis at the same time I suspect it's going to be a faulty board, arduino or psu. Unless the boxzy team can send parts it's basically DOA.
