Hey, if you set the extrusion and motion parameters right, you could get the steppers to all "sing" notes on a 12-tone equally tempered scale. Insta, your trio really needs to be a quartet, don't you think?

I move we call a grouping of M2s a "chorus" or a "band". (Heavy metal, anyone?) Or, if you take my previous advice and get enough of them, an "orchestra"...

You've all seen the various floppy-drive stepper-motor music videos out there, right? Search YouTube for "Imperial March of the Floppies". Now imaging making plastic goodies while listening to great music. Sing, Sing, Sing! (Benny Goodman is best played on Tesla coids, by the way...)

+1 for 'orchestra'

(Though I was going to answer the original question with "awesome," and maybe "jealousy-inducing")

In that vein, I'd call them "NOOICE!!!"
(see http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=nooice )

I know that's what I say whenever I see them churning out M2 parts at MG HQ. It sure is nice living and working close enough to drop in at lunchtime!

Just doing a little of my own jealousy inducing! HA! Now you know why Cleveland is, as we say, "The Best Location in the Nation". Come for the pierogi or the Rock Hall or the Orchestra or the Cavs/Browns/Indians, stay for the M2s.

Hmm.... A different perspective.

A Gearbox?
A Transmission?
