Materials Required - AS-PR0164

2 Attaching the X-axis motor

Slide one GT2 timing pulley [HD-MS0033] on to the shaft of the [EL-MT0029] moons motor using the provided jig and fasten the set screw to the flat part of the shaft.
Torque to 3 in*lbs.

Insert a 625-2RS Rubber Sealed Bearing [HD-MS0411] into X-End Motor Sub-Assembly [AS-PR0160]

Install the motor with pulley [EL-MT0029 & HD-MS0033] onto the X-End Motor Sub-Assembly [AS-PR0160] using 3x M3x10 BHCS [HD-BT0148] with washers [HD-WA0038] Ensure the motors connector is facing the bottom of the part.

3 Assembling the Z-lower left

Install one timing pulley [HD-MS0033] on to the [EL-MT0056] motor shaft in the orientation shown using the printed spacer. Ensure one of the set screws is tightened to the flat portion of the motor shaft.
Torque to 3 in*lbs.

Insert a [HD-MS0411] sealed rubber bearing into the designated spot on the [PP-GP0360] Z-lower left.

Insert the belt with the YZ idler into the slot of top of the Z-lower left, making sure that the head of the fastener on the YZ idler is facing away from the motor.

Insert the [EL-MT0056] motors shaft into the sealed bearing making sure that you go through the belt loop. Check to ensure that the motor connector is facing towards the bottom of the assembly. Fasten the motor with 3x M3x10 FHCS [HD-BT0148] with washers [HD-WA0038].

4 Final Assembly

Wipe down the smooth rods to ensure they are free from any contaminants.

and Slide 2x 10mm Smooth Rods [HD-RD0061] through the x-end motor bearings and insert each end into the designated spots on the Z-upper left assembly [AS-PR0135] and Z-lower left.

Place the YZ idler into the slot on the Z-upper and secure it using 1x M5x10 BHCS [HD-BT0073] with washer [HD-WA0040].

Tighten the Z-Axis compression hardware while moving the X-Motor End back and forth through the range of travel.
Tighten until bearing doesn't wobble on rod but still slides freely.

Place the [PP-GP0394] belt anchor, groove side face towards the grooves of the belt, and fasten with 4x M3x10 BHCS [HD-BT0148] with washers [HD-WA0038].
Torque fasteners to 5 in*lbs.
