stepper motor moving a sled on rails with a timing belt

Once I had control of a simple shape I would implement use an open source firmware to control motion, and investigate more on the software to allow user text or drawings to be ‘printed.’

So far:
I have used my CNC more to make the stepper mounts and the wood blocks.
I made a C++ header with a class for the DVR8825 module.
Constructed a two rail gantry out of 10mm drill rod and linear bearings, used GT2 timing belt with 30 teeth on the stepper and a pair of fanged bearings on the other side.
