Assemble gantry

same as x carve instructions (just other order or steps here)

Now, slide the X carriage over the wide makerslide. You can adjust the lower wheels, with the eccentric spacers to make it easier to slide it over the rail. Please take close attention to the orientation of the wide makerslide: see the pictures:

Please take close attention to the orientation of the wide makerslide: there is a slot for the T-slot nuts on the top and one at the back.

Then put 2 T-slot nuts in the slot on the top!!

Use M5 12mm button head screws to attach the side plates to the wide makerslide rail.

  • Add the plastic drag chain support brackets at the place of the lower screws
  • Attach a M5 washer at the M5 12mm screw that will sit on the top oval hole of the side plate

Do the same for the other side:

Finally, add the drag chain rail: that is the 2020 rail that has the M5 thread in it. Also, put in one T slot nut, and use M5 14mm screws to attach the rail to the plastic drag chain brackets:
