This is like finding 4 decent tires and deciding to build the "Perfect" car around them, don't you want to enjoy the fact that this craft never has to see the use of a computer?
Knock your self out, but as an owner of two RH Designs StopClocks and a couple other of those brand of items who recently took a hands on printing workshop with an absolute master, I can honestly say that all any good printer really needs is a decent timer, simple metronome and experience. The rest is just fidgeting around and amounts to numerical distractions from doing the real work of becoming a better printer and a better photographer.
Even though there is a ton of value in getting down methods that provide you with consistent results, you are using materials that are best to get a "feel" for rather than get lost in the science of it all. I am somewhat sad to say that a lot of the work I see from other enthusiasts reflects the latter rather than the former.
The choice is yours, you can build a robot to play a guitar via your thought inputs or you can pick it up your self and play it with your own two hands...
