DrawBot – The Breakdown, Part II

Since my prior cost breakdown post, I’ve invested a little more in this project.  Thankfully, this hasn’t been a project where I’ve been throwing money at the end goal.  Overall, it’s been incredibly cheap with the cost of failure at the most delicate points being quite low.this help in choosing the steppers and power adapter.  Here’s what I bought and from where:

Right now the robot is probably close to its final form and I don’t anticipate any further expenditures.  Someone who has a box of electronic stuff could almost certainly build this robot for next to nothing.  Many other people have spare Arduinos, steppers, stepper controllers, and power supplies.  If I just purchased the bare minimum for this project and used scrap stuff from around the house, I probably could have built this robot even cheaper.
