Indymaker z-axis cailbration

Endstops installed and tested. First thing the machine needs to know before a print is how far it can move in any direction. This calibration test starts with the extruder nozzle right at the printing surface. It then moves all the way up and records the distance. Design goal was 60mm, measures 64.7mm. The reinforcements on the frame work as expected, it's quite sturdy
