Attach Z-drive rods

  1. Install one M8 nut onto each of the remaining 295 mm (1 dot) threaded rods

  2. Install the rods onto the frame by sliding the rods with the nut side down through the Z-motor mounts and into the hex bores of the X-axis idler assembly and the X-axis motor assembly

  3. Install three M8 nuts onto each threaded rods. The nuts need to be affixed to the side of the rod that has passed through the plastic housings (opposite the previously installed nuts)
    1. Note: the first nut install for each rod should sit inside of the hex bore on the housings
