5 Arduino Pro Micro's later the FinalKey still doesn't work video shortly. Update: Well I knew the problem would end up being me. I failed to properly  load the modified boot-loader. Oyee!

Looks like an interesting challenge. 
 
The goal of this challenge is to design a small satellite frame optimized for additive manufacturing. By using the benefits of design for additive manufacturing (DFAM) principles: Mass distributions and materials can be rethought to minimize weight, Part count can be reduced to improve producibility, and ultimately, cost can be reduced.
Design great product faster with free CAD collaboration, free CAD models and access to the world's largest community of mechanical engineers.

I imagine you could maximize the structural integrity and reduce weight / size by actually printing around the innards.  like having the prints stop drop in the stuff, and then let it finish printing the one piece geometric structure.  I figure you want a bridge builder workin on it , as that really is what it is.

Why do I always find the fucked up bugs in hardware projects?  Seriously every time I try to build something I run into the .00001 edge case. It makes me want to take a sledge to this stuff.

Borked FinalKey prompt and no it doesn't work at all. The setup went fine. I emailed the author hopefully he might have some insight.

Update: Author gave me a couple things to try. I will see if I can get it working tonight.

It's interesting that they have all that extruded aluminum in the machine, yet it's still moving on linear rod and bearings. Seems like an odd design.
