    What is the name of the silver connectors I assume there is one  for each steppers and have 4 pins?

    the DB9 connection I assume is for the end stops? What are the pin assignments?

    The connectors are called XLR or Aviation plugs, I bought these.

    DB9 pinout does not matter, as long as you do the same in the RAMPS end.

    instead of using 4 xlr and one db9, you can use 5 xlr (with 4 pin)

    for endstop (1pin for ground and 3 pin for each axis)

    I’m building with 6 endstops (min and max on each axis) so I think using DB9 is a great choice with good availability of cables.

    thank you, I am going with min/max endstops on all three axis.

    Next question, in the picture below there are two connectors, what are these connectors called and what do they do? thanks.

    The above connectors look like banana jacks, but what they are for I am not sure.

    Back to the aviation plugs, what size plug are you using with which size of wire?

    The Panel.stl will accommodate a 12mm plug, but there is no way that will accept an 18 gauge wire.

    The aviation plug are GX12-4 😉 I only used them for the Stepper Motors, which were 24AWG I think.

    the banana plugs are used for the Z probe. I use this for referencing and also PCB probing.

    What’s this about a Z probe?  What are you using for the probe, and how are you mounting it?

    I used the Z probe main for PCBs, though it just a crocodile clip which I temporarily clip to the spindle and then have a touch pad to create the circuit. I currently use a bit of FR4 PCB for my touchpad, though I am looking at purchasing one of these.
