I have assembled the thing-o-matic, but cant get it to connect to my computer.
The firmwares have been installed for both boards (2.4 and 2.6). Power is reaching all the devices fine. The right drivers have been installed on the computer.
One problem I noticed is when I connect only the arduino mega board to the computer, it will connect fine (of course it cant find any toolheads, but thats fine considering Im only checking the connection. When I plug in the motherboard shield into the arduino board, it wont connect anymore. The lights come on for everything still, but the computer cant establish a connection with the board.
I also noticed that when the motherboard is plugged into the arduino board, the reset button will not work when trying to upgrade the firmware. I can upgrade firmware just fine when I use reset button on the arduino board.
Also, the output of ReplicatorG 0023 is:
[18:39:34] Read timed out. [18:39:34] Packet timed out! [18:39:37] Read timed out. [18:39:37] Packet timed out! [18:39:37] Null version reported! [18:39:42] Read timed out.

I spent a nice chunk of time trying to get this thing built and get it working, would really like to get past this.
