  1. Attach a Drag-Chain-Fixed-End to the V-Slot-2040-750mm using an M5-Low-Profile 8mm and an M5-Drop-In-Tee-Nut.
    • Attach a Drag-Chain-Fixed-End to the V-Slot-2040-750mm using an M5-Low-Profile 8mm and an M5-Drop-In-Tee-Nut.

    • It should be located 150mm from right hand end of the V-Slot-2040-750mm if looking from the back. Ensure that it is parallel with the V-Slot-2040-750mm.

  2. Attach a Drag-Chain-Moving-End to the X-Drag-Chain-Moving-End-Mount in the orientation shown above using 3 x M5-Low-Profile-15mm bolts and 3 x M5-Nyloc-Nuts.
    • Attach a Drag-Chain-Moving-End to the X-Drag-Chain-Moving-End-Mount in the orientation shown above using 3 x M5-Low-Profile-15mm bolts and 3 x M5-Nyloc-Nuts.

  3. Secure the X-Axis-Moving-End-Assembly to the X-Plate-Back using 2 x M5-Low-Profile-55mm bolts and 2 x M5-Nyloc-Nuts.
    • Secure the X-Axis-Moving-End-Assembly to the X-Plate-Back using 2 x M5-Low-Profile-55mm bolts and 2 x M5-Nyloc-Nuts.

  4. Like with the Y-Axis, lay the X-Drag-Chain flat on a table. Feed through the Z-Axis stepper motor wire.
    • Like with the Y-Axis, lay the X-Drag-Chain flat on a table. Feed through the Z-Axis stepper motor wire.

    • The end of the stepper motor wires with the black connectors should be at the male end of the X-Drag-Chain (opposite to Y-Axis).

    • Attach the female end of the X-Drag-Chain to the Drag-Chain-Fixed-End on the V Slot-2040-750mm. It will take some force to click it into the Drag-Chain-Fixed-End.

    • Bring the male end of the X-Drag-Chain up to the X-Axis-Moving-End-Assembly and attach it to the Drag-Chain-Moving-End. It will take some force to click it into the Drag-Chain-Moving-End.

The Z axis limit switch wire also needs to be fed through this drag chain. Because of the way the wires are routed, it cannot be done at this stage. A better solution (so that you do not need to fiddle with doing this on an installed drag chain) is to put an in-line connector in the limit switch lead and put the lead in now.
