OKMI 3d Printer v0.2

I am going to reuse the makibox hardware in to my 3d printer of my own design. After finding out about #openbuilds it was a nobrainer to build a 3d printer on there extrusion system.

This is version 0.2 big difference between 0.2 and 0.1 is the z height drive position. I moved it to the bottom to make sure the belt is not in the way of the hot end. The wooden parts are to be replaced for 3d printed parts as soon as it works.

Also up for replacement are the mounting plates for the xy motors and the idlers these plates are just a little bit to big to make side panels. I want the clean look of a #makibox but first i need a printer that functions.
