Similarly to what we did for the Y-axis assembly, we'll do this in four easy steps:

  1. X idler end assembly.
  2. X motor end assembly.
  3. X smooth rods and carriage installation.
  4. X belt installation.

Each step requires 15-20 minutes, so set aside one evening for the X-axis assembly.

X idler end assembly

For this step we require this tool:

X motor end assembly

X smooth rods and carriage installation

This is what things should look like now:
