Yeah, it looks quite similar to mine, although the print head board is different.
I haven't really cut anything yet, I was going to leave the optical end stops intact and what ever other sensors that I could leave for later use.
As for the stepper motors I decided it would be far easier to use the Duet TMC drivers and take advantage of the sensorless homing so that I don't have to worry about wiring any of the endstops. It works quite well, and I have the advantage of being able to use the stall guard feature for crash detection during printing.
I got rid of the lcd and replaced it with a raspberry pi touchscreen. Unfortunately Octoscreen (octoprint UI) won't run when rotated 90*. The Panel Due does not support 90* rotation either. Frustrating.
The stock hotend design is only going to work for printing pc-abs or other high tempature materials that won't deform at lower temperatures. Due to this limitation I'm replacing the extruder assembly with a single hotend for now. I may have a custom 120 watt 24v heater core made for this, the owner of this company is a friend of mine so it makes this easier for me to acquire.
