I am in the process of building my first reprap printer (an SAE prusa).
So far I think I have a good idea on how to proceed with the hardware part.

- I am thinking about using the gen 4 electronics from makerbot but I do not know if its the best option out there.

- My questions are the following:

- Any body have a preference on what motherboard to use and why?

- where do I get the reprap software to setup the printer parameters such as (motors rpm vs linear displacement) , nozzle temperature setting etc.

- how many software packages are needed to setup and run the printer and where can I find them?

thank you for your input.
