EShapeoko 1.3 Assembly Instructions
We have tried to make these instructions as clear and easy to follow as possible. However, even with the benefit of the simplicity of the MakerSlide system, it is still a fairly complex machine, with many parts, so the assembly can be daunting. To make it easier, we broke it down into fairly small steps.
We welcome questions, corrections, and suggestions for improvement.
The instructions aim to cover all options and features, including some alternate motor mounting options and belt and idler configurations.
Compared to version 1.2, the Z axis has been updated, with a new motor plate and a new type of bearing. This simplifies assembly considerably.
During the build, it's easier to keep the small parts in their bags until needed.
Please pay attention to the washers: follow the instructions exactly.
