PCB's have been made... :)

There are actually very useful because we use them to keep the Black headers in place when soldering the boards.

Very nice solution! Are these available yet?

It's not clear from the photo, but can the board be easily separated (i.e., by way of perforations) into individual sections? That would make it possible to use on-board drivers for some motors and external drivers for others.

That is awesome! If available shoot me a price for four of those. I would love to swap them onto my setup and do a video of the upgrade.

Yes.... They are V-Scored on both sides and will snap off.

Hi, I'm would also be interested in purchasing the "external driver bords" to replace my somewhat sloppy jumper wiring and get a clean look :) But since I haven't been active (only reading) here I can't pm.
