In this section I show more or less how the mechanics should be assembled. This page was written by Tatubias. Please update with your images and better explanation text.
In the following image more or less all the parts required are visible (printed parts, nuts, screws, rods, stepper motors, drivers, and more).
First cut and drill the base. I did sent them to laser cut and laser drill to avoid misalignments. If desired, paint them with a color of choice. I used MDF wood. Glue with silicon Rubbers to avoid nuts scratch the table surface.
Put the bolts and nuts to the 2 laterals and tighten them (not too much, we require them loose so later we can align all the machine).
Then add the support for the Y axis
Put nuts and bolt to the y rods support. Leave them somewhat loose so that you can align them with the machine structure.
Note: here I recommend to install the end stop as it will be more complicated to do this later.
Get the plate where drilling will happen and add the supports for the pcb. Add the nuts to all the parts. In the back part add the support and the linear bearings. Do NOT tighten too much (this will be done later during alignment).
In the back part, now you will be installing the anti backslash system. Install the nuts and bolts. Don't tighten these too much either.
Now we will assemble the y axis. In the picture below all the required parts are visible.
This is how it looks fully assembled from below.
Mount the plate into the machine. Don't tighten the rods to the structure.
Tighten all the nuts and bolts from the y axis
Now its time to align the plate. Move the plate to one of the sides, then tighten all the nuts and bolts.
Then move the plate to the other side and tighten all the nuts and bolts. If you did not add the end stop yet, add it now.
So far we've assembled the base, the basic structure, and the y axis. Now it's time to assemble the X axis and the Y axis
Install the linear bearing on the X carriage and put in the nuts and bots. Don't tighten too much.
Now we will assemble the X axis.
Install the rod into the structure. Don't tighten too much either.
NOTE: do not install the nut in the picture below, it is not needed!
This is how it looks now.
Now it's time to mount the Z axis. Get the threaded rod for the Z axis, add 2 nuts, and mount it as on the photograph.
NOTE: The bottom nut is not needed, do not install it!
Now add the bearing, and the other nut (ignore the bottom one in the picture!)
Add the smooth rods.
Mount the bearing and the linear bearing.
Mount the motor, and mount all into the smooth rods
Now install the gears.
Now add the gears for the x axis
Add the covers for the gears.
Now install the final endstop and we are done.
Here are some pictures of the final assembly.
