Reattach the control board, to the BOXZY. Also decide if we want to upgrade the stepper motor drivers (I RECOMMEND UPGRADING THE STEPPER MOTOR DRIVERS)

Step #1: Screw control board back onto BOXZY (DO NOT FORGET TO INCLUDE THE NYLON SPACERS). Afterwards verify if we want to upgrade the motor controllers (BOXZY initially used A4988 stepper drivers). I recommend upgrading to the DRV8255 motor drivers instead of A4988 because they handle higher voltages better).

Step #2: Verify that all the wires are still properly fitted into their sockets, and that they did not detach while the board was off of the BOXZY.

Step #3: Decide whether to upgrade the stepper motor drivers on the control board. The BOXZY initially used A4988 stepper motor drivers (see the link here https://www.pololu.com/product/1182). If one of them burns out they will need replacement. I suggest using the DRV8255 stepper motor drivers shown here https://www.pololu.com/product/2133

Step #4: If you do decide to upgrade the stepper motor drivers, then follow the optional steps 2.G & 2.H on the next two pages.
