  1. Two idler bearing halves M3x25 screw 6mm hex spacer (That's the longer one of the two spacers in JellyBOX!)
    • Two idler bearing halves

    • M3x25 screw

    • 6mm hex spacer (That's the longer one of the two spacers in JellyBOX!)

    • Tighten well.

    • Tip: The IMADE3D wrench has a special slot just for the spacers as they are slightly smaller than regular M3 nuts.

  2. Get the y idler into position. Place an M3 regular washer on either side of the acrylic. Secure with an M3 nylock.
    • Get the y idler into position.

    • Place an M3 regular washer on either side of the acrylic.

    • Secure with an M3 nylock.

    • Tighten well, but careful not to crack the acrylic.

  3. Y assembly
    • Y assembly

    • Smooth rods (2x)

    • 5'' zip ties (4x)

  4. Thread the smooth rods through the bearings on the Y Assembly.
    • Thread the smooth rods through the bearings on the Y Assembly.

    • If you push the smooth rod at an angle with force, you could knock out some balls out of the bearings.

  5. 5'' zip ties Make sure to keep the heads of the zip ties on the underside of the Bottom piece.

  10. Lightly tension the belt.
    • Lightly tension the belt.

    • We'll dial in the tension more precisely later.

    • Make sure that the Y EndStop gets engaged by one of a Y Assembly bearing.

    • There's an audible "click".

    • Otherwise the Y motor would not stop spinning when the Y assembly reaches its limit.

    • Do not move too fast. You are generating current by forcing the motor to rotate. If you generate too much current, you could damage your electronics.

    • Make sure the Y assembly is moving smoothly.

Can I suggest you add instructions for the optional heated bead wiring to this section.

Would be worth adding information for optional heated bed wiring to this stage even as attached PDF.

Thanks for the feedback @gordon_cat. It makes no sense to have the heated bed in a separate upgrade section only.
