Also make sure the belt isn’t rubbing on something. This can cause the uneven start-stop motion.
Might I suggest replacing the Jo graphic with something that makes more logical sense, like a diagram of a bolt, nut, wrench and a broken part. All it reminded me of is that I was behind on bear consumption.
I’m confused by the confusion. I used an adjustable wrench and it was a breeze. As always, don’t overtighten.
The tolerances were so tight on the frame that I trusted it was correct more than I trusted my pressboard desk was scientifically flat. Am done and printing and it’s perfect. I say skip this step. Though “don’t overtighten” are wise words here.
I don’t have a torque wrench. I tightened everything until contact was made, then just a little more. No forcing was needed. Everything turned out wonderfully.
I don’t think I had even one instance of a nut falling out. Every single one required the bolt-pull method (except for slot-inserted nuts). Think of them all as press fit.
I made this same error. BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
I’ve since completed the entire assembly (and it works amazingly), but ran into the dreaded x axis head crash! This step is why. One vital piece of missing info is that the alignment of the drive gear should be centered in it’s mount. The manual currently says “until you reach the best position”. The best position is centered in its mount. Referring to the top & bottom belt being centered above each other is a good general step to make sure the gear isn’t on backwards, but better is to simply center it in its housing & be done. This way you can avoid the x axis crash like I didn’t,
You’ve just saved yourself mental anguish. Eat another bear!
I probably followed the eating instructions closer than most. These are the best gummies I’ve ever had, and I would never go buy them on my own… but yum! Still have some left and when ever I eat some, I feel that Prusa really appreciates their customers - silly as that sounds.
I’d also suggest that if any questions arise or you’re not sure about something, the on-line manual may have been updated. User comments are often very helpful. If you run into something odd, someone else probably has. I found this to be the case a few times! Sadly there’s no way to update the paper manual as it sits on your desk. Yet.
I just let the extra hang out the bottom, making sure it wouldn’t catch on anything. The E wire was just slightly too short, but some squirming it around inside the cloth sheath made it reach. Barely.
