|Frame built & screwed together using 90 degree brackets|
|Holes & counterbore drilled for corner build platform leveling screws (4x)|
|T-Slot nuts installed for Pillow Blocks (8x T-slot nuts) and Belt Clamps (4x T-Slot nuts) I put a piece of painter's tape over the end of each extrusion to prevent the T-Slot nuts from falling out when I was installing the Y-axis carriage.|
|Y-Carriage installed in Mendel Max 1.5 frame- showing detail of belt clamps and 8mm bushing pillow blocks|
|Y-Axis Carriage Installed!|
The RAMPs 1.4 controller board, Arduino, and power supply also arrived at my doorstep last week. I'm a bit unsure of the installation, wiring, and setup of the electronics. It seems like most people on the web who are building these printers come from the software / electronics side of the world- so their tutorials are almost always fairly in depth for the mechanical assembly but gloss over the electrical side. I have completed a few arduino based electronics projects so I'm sure I'll be able to fumble through it.
