Preliminary instructions'

You'll need one belt (200 mm longer than your X axis) and a third of the parts from Pack 11, with the belt tensioner tapped M5.

Please review the X and Y carriage instructions for placement of the belt. Use a clamp made of two oval plates, two 10 mm long M5 screws, and two nuts a few millimeters from one end of the belt. Tighten firmly. Thread the other end through the belt anchor plate; around one idler, the belt pulley on the motor shaft, and the other idler; and through the opposite anchor plate. Place a belt tensioner on the belt (with the threaded hole pointing up for belt configurations A, B, E, F; or down, for configurations C and D), and add another clamp. Pulling on the belt, tighten the clamp firmly, then insert a 14 mm long M5 screw in the belt tensioner. Tighten this screw to increase belt tension. The belts need to be fairly taut, but do not overtighten, or you'll damage the belt and reduce the life of the pulley and motor bearings.
