    Which way round is the bed supposed to go? The PDF and video seem to conflict and even the PDF photo is confusing when you look at the length of the drawn white lines. I've set mine with the wide end to the front according to the wording in that photo.
    BTW I have an unused bag of 15 M4*8mm. Would that be a quality control error in relation to the oft-mentioned problem of mounting Stepper Motors elsewhere in this forum?

  2. Long edge at front on mine!

    ive got an issue myself. All of my limit switches are terminated to a two prong plug whereas the ports on the board are three pronged so don’t fit!! :( That couple with poorly tapped holes on the linear bearings I can’t even use the thing!!!!!

    My limit switches are terminated in 3pin plugs and did fit BUT the smooth rods on the Zaxis are too long! Not a terminal (sic) problem,
    just another indication of Quality Control being lacking.

  4. My knurled ones were a tad too long but I’ve managed to make them fit.

    im going to terminate the cables myself because I don’t want to wait. 

    Can you tell tell me if it’s the following order on the board please? The board has the symbols printed on it :)

    + is yellow wire
    - is black wire
    S has no wire

    Looking at the board when fitted to the frame Yellow is the bottom pin, Black is the centre pin and the top pin is vacant. I'll send a photo to back this up shortly. I can't take one at the mo because the machine is doing its first print! And it is impressing me!

    That's right. DO NOT connect to the + pin, that is at 12V!

  8. I managed to view the picture properly and have terminated them properly and all is working :). Thanks for the assistance to both of you.
