Assembly of Y-axis

Assembly of Y-axis is the same as assembly of y-axis for FABOOL Laser Mini. The position you insert M5 T nut is also the same. Combine the three V-slot 1170mm on the flat surface as in the picture.

Adjustment and Check of Y-axis

Check the movement of Y-axis manually. The right state where the x-axis unit naturally slides down when the body is stood up as it is in the video. If is does not slide smoothly, make adjustment of eccentric spacer on mini v plate_R and mini v plate_L.
Turn the eccentric spacer on both sides by little to make adjustments. Turn the eccentric spacer on one side, first.

Adjustment of Y-axis

Install Y-axis motor unit and idler pulley plate. Please see “Assembly of Y-axis” for FABOOL Laser Mini for installation position.
