Wallace GP1 Build Instructions
- 2x 445mm Z
- 4x M3x10 Screws
- 4x M3 Nuts
- 2 Motor Block Plastics
Drop nut into Rod hole and jiggle into approximate place or use longer
screw to insert nut through view hole.
Thread M3x10 screw in from back. It may take a couple tries to get the nut
to lay flat and engage screw.
Once screw has engaged nut, tighten until nut bottoms out in nut trap.
Now back screw out until end can't be seen when looking down the Rod hole.
Repeat with other screw and nut.
Insert Z-Rod. Press firmly down until it bottoms out.
Now tighten screws to secure in place. Snug is sufficient.
Repeat for second block.
- 2x Motor Block assemblies
- 2x Bed Mounts
- 3x Bearing holders
- 1x Bearing Switch holder
- 1x Y Motor Mount
- 2x 440mm or 370mm Threaded Rods
- 20x M8 Nuts
- 20x M8 Washers
- Motor Foot ends for measuring
Insert the 440MM Threaded Rods into a Motor mount. You
can use a motor and Motor foot end to check enough threaded rod is
through, or measure 45mm beyond block. (If using 370mm there should be
just a bit more than needed to hold the nut and washer.)
Remove Foot end. Place washers and thread on Nuts. Use combination square
or other square ruler to verify rods are 90° before tightening nuts.
Thread on another pare of nuts and washers. Slide Bed mount down until
55mm away from Motor Block.
Note: The following nuts can be used to persuade parts to move down if
they jam. Jamming usually means it got a little skewed.
Leave washers and nuts loose. The bearing holders will fill the gap.
Repeat with Y-Motor Mount and next Bed Mount. Bed mounts should be 112mm
apart. Y-Motor mount will be adjusted into place when adding Bed.
Slide on left Motor Block to 86mm from last Bed Mount. Only finger tighten
as X-Carriage will guide exact placement.
