X-axis carriage assembly

  1. Install three LM8UU bearings into the X-axis carriage
    1. Note: Use a blow dryer/heat gun to allow the bushing retention features to cold flow, to reduce the likelihood of breaking a feature
    2. Note: In the event that the bushing retention features snap off during assembly, the bearings can be held in place using zip-ties

  2. Install two M3 nuts into the belt mount with hex recesses
  3. Install two M3x22 mm bolts into the belt mount with round recesses
