It actually is kind of fun seeing it come together as I go through the build.

Quick note about the nuts, if they don't go in from one side of the piece I found it often will slide in better from the other side.

I didn't get any progress pics of Stage 3, but it is fairly easy to do. For Stage 4 I started with these:
First I peeled the backing off, then inserted the nuts. Specific to these two (Small bracket plates), I did NOT need glue, as the fit was tight. This is where my note comes into play, these were still a tight fit from either side. Anyway that's what happened to me, yours may differ.

In the above image I have set the bracket subassembly on the bottom panel, to get it level so that I can tighten the screws. Don't forget to put washers on!

The Bottom panel, before 'the peel'. You can probably figure out where the bracket subassembly will go. Make sure to align everything properly, to ensure a successful build. In the following image note the location of the four holes, in relation to the bracket subassembly. this is what I'm talking about, aligning everything properly. The build guides instruct about this at every step.

One more…Stage 4 completed

Hi,BigGrin

Coming on nicely.

May be a useful tip for you, but I left as much covering paper on the large parts as possible. I only removed it from the area I was working on at the time.

Keep up the good work, it`s a nice kit to assemble.

Regards

It starts getting interesting from here on, especially when you start fitting the drive gears and belts.

Will try and get an update on for you of my build in the next couple of days. It may assist you as you progress.

yes, I agree about the pictures, there was one in the guide that confused me, but the other pictures helped.

And here is Stage 5. I should probably have paced myself a bit, because as I catch up with the packs I have received, I will have to wait for the next one arrive :-/
Here are the components for Stage 5, installing a cooling fan.

getting the fan guard in place…

hold it in place and get the cooling fan in place. The cable should go to the bottom right

I think my old MRC-Tamiya spanner will come in handy during the build. I recall another build diary is using one as well. It's from an old RC kit Laugh

Stage 6, install the noise filter. It will be installed on the same panel as the cooling fan, above.
Components-

in it goes, don't forget to washer your screws! Also check to see if any washers have stuck together. This only happened to me once so far. I thought I was short one washer, but nope. There are spares included in a later step, but luckily I was not missing any.

This spanner is included in pack 03 with a 2mm Allen key

I don't seem to have pictures of the limit switch install. Maybe I didn't upload them. Anyway this is the completed panel of Pack 02, Stage 7. If you're at this point and have Pack 03 ready, don't put this panel away just yet, if you decide to keep building.

Before proceeding further, there was an amendment to the alignment of the fan assembly. Luckily Delboy was able to post about his before I got too far into the build. So fellow future builders take note(and go check out Delboy's build diary!) :
before the amendment-

after-

Pack 03, Stage 9 preview

I didn't get a lot of Stage 9 photographed, but I will post what I did get. Mostly this Stage is screwing all the panels together to create the 'box of the 'idbox'

Good to see you progressing with this one.

It starts to get interesting when the box is constructed, so hope to see another update soon.

I believe I know what you speak of. I've already put the belts and rods in and it was my least favorite so far.
I won't always post each stage as I finish, but I will try to post when I can. I just got Pack 7 yesterday, but I'm finished as far as pack 5 ( I think...)

Stage 9: (a lot of screws, washers and nuts. wheeee!)

Stage 11: Attach the lead screw nut to the table base. Last worked on in Stage 2. attach a lead screw nut.

Slather your nuts umm I mean the nut with some PVA glue...

The instructions point out to keep the straight edges of the nut parallel with the edges of the table base..

Pack 04, Stage 12: attach a timing pulley to a Y-axis slider rod.

There could be about 1cm to 2 cm between the toothed end and the end of the rod




It will look like this when the step is completed. This will be repeated in upcoming stages.

Again I haven't been getting very many pictures of my build. It looks like I don't have any for Stage 15 which is the beginning of another slider rod assembly.
Stage 16 to 20. My apologies not a lot of pictures.
