And also settings for the print.

Christian Francisco Rivera has a few upgrades for A8 to support stability and stop the "jerk" when transitioning between X and Y on sharp corners... including belt tensioners and ball bearings for the Z rods. And he also added a solid base to prevent the frame from warping when tensioning the Y belt as well as T joints to the top of the frame.
