We will now assemble the main gantry of the machine using the sub-assemblies you’ve built thus far. After this is assembled, your machine’s frame will almost be complete.
Start by inserting 2 M5 T-Slot Nuts into the groove on the top side of the wide MakerSlide rail.
Slide the completed x-carriage onto the makerslide rail. If the x-carriage does not slide on smoothly, you may need to adjust the v-wheels with the eccentric spacers. The stepper motor should face away from the X-Carve logo on the front of the makerslide.
Attach each of the Y plates loosely to the makerslide using 2 M5x12mm screws. You will use a single M5 washer per side on the exposed slotted hole in the plate.
Make sure the beveled side of the plates and the X-Carve logo on the gantry rail are facing in the same direction.
You will now slide the gantry assembly onto the machine frame. The X-Carve logo should face the front of the machine. Once you have installed the gantry onto the machine, you can tighten the M5x12mm screws that secure the Y plates to the wide makerslide.
