So, you just finished assembling the printer and are ready to turn on the printer for the first time?
Before you do that, it is recommended that you do a few pre-checks first.
1 – Check Connections
Make sure that all the plugs (endstops, motors, fans, power, etc) are plugged in correctly. Also, make sure each cable is connected in the correct connector.
2 – Check all the belts and check their tension.
Now it is time to look at all of our TEVO Tornado belts and check their tension.
3 – Check all the carriages.
Make sure they move correctly along the entire axis and make sure that they don’t have any wobble. You can fix the wobble by adjusting the eccentric nuts behind some of the wheels.
4 – Move each axis manually
Now it is time to check the X, Y & Z axis – test if they move freely along from endstop till opposite end.
Also check if they can reach the endstops without any obstacles like cables.
