X-Axis motor missing from the kit (2 Y-axis included)

Re: Step 12 of X Axis assembly requires motor labelled as 'X-Axis'. In my kit there is no such motor. Instead there are two 'Y-Axis' motors. And no I did not accidently use the x-axis motor in the y axis assembly. Are the motors the same? Or do I need to get Prusa to dispatch the correctly labelled motor?

Is this a good question?

Chosen Solution

This was answered by the Prusa support team:

'The Y motor has a longer lead than the X motor, in this case it shouldn't be a problem. You just may have some excess wire.'

So it seems that the motors are the same and hopefully all will be well.

Can you give me the info of the Y motor used on the Prusa i3 MK2S assembly v2.05? Because i lost it, and i need to buy another one.pls


@daniellages Hi Daniel, contact directly our support at info@prusa3d.com, it will be better to get the original motor or at least official specs.
