Assembly Instructions (pdf)

 

Tips

  • Get the gantry together first before worrying about software.
  • Installing the belts takes longer than you think, give yourself time.
  • Test the machine without a pen/pencil installed first.

 

Software

Initially, we will run the plotters from Windows machines (get a laptop from the ER) running mDraw.
