Gather Materials

2 Attach Pulleys and Place Bearings

Place 1x NEMA 17 stepper motor [EL-MT0068] inside the Z lower motor jig, then slide 1x 16 teeth timing pulley [HD-MS0033] on the motor shaft making sure one of the set screws on the pulley is aligned with the flat side of the motor shaft.

While pushing down on the timing pulley tighten both set screws. Then torque the set screws to 3 in*lb.

Repeat these steps for the second stepper motor.

Using the bearing punch jig and 1x rubber sealed bearing [HD-MS0411] and Z lower right [PP-GP0536] press the bearing into the teardrop shaped hole [reference#1]

Repeat for Z lower left [PP-GP0537]

Place EL-MT0068 inside Z lower motor jig and slide HD-MS0033 over shaft
Make sure one set screw is on the flat side of the shaft and tighten set screw down, repeat for second set screw
Torque set screws to 3 in*lb
Repeat steps for second motor
Gather materials for pressing in bearings
[reference#1] Using the bearing punch jig press the bearing into the Z lower (left or right)
Repeat for the other Z Lower

3 Attach Motors to Z Lowers

Place 1x NEMA stepper motor inside Z lower left making sure the shaft is sitting in the rubber sealed bearing and the motor connector is facing up.

Then using 4x M3x12 SHCS [HD-BT0039] with 4x M3 washers [HD-WA0038] secure the motor to the Z lower.

Repeat these steps using Z lower right.

Then route a scrap belt around the motor and pull on one side of the belt to check if the bearing and pulley rub together.

Note: If the bearing and pulley are rubbing together you will feel a jerking while pulling on the belt, if this happens remove motor and reinstall the bearing.

Check the second motor on the other Z lower.

Load 4x HD-BT0039 with 4x HD-WA0038 and place stepper motor inside Z lower
[reference#2] Holes for HD-BT0039 on Z lowers
Using the preloaded screws secure motor to Z lower
Repeat for the other Z Lower
Check the bearing and pulley

4 Fasten Z Lowers to Extrusions

Place the Z lower right with motor inside the 289 Z lower jig making sure the motor is sitting next to the middle metal tab.

Then use 2x T-Slot Extrusion 271mm [HD-EX0095] and slide them into the Z lower right. Then following [reference#3] slide 11x T-Slot nuts into the extrusions.

Place the Z lower left on the other ends of the extrusions and place them in the 289 Z lower jig.

Start to fasten 2x M5x20 BHCS [HD-BT0272]

Place PP-GP0536 inside the 289 Z lower jig making sure the motor is sitting by the middle tab
Slide 2x HD-EX0095 inside the Z lower and the red extrusion stands
[reference#3] Slide 11x HD-NT0053 into HD-EX0095
Place PP-GP0537 inside the 289 Z lower jig
Start fastening 2x HD-BT0272 into PP-GP0537
Start fastening 2x HD-BT0272 into PP-GP0536
Using the 3mm drill fasten all four HD-BT0272
