Before assembly, we will perform shaft adjustment and inspection on three types of micro v plates.
Please check if all 10 screws are firmly fixed.
If the screws are loose, tighten with a hex wrench and wrench.
Next, adjust the space between the wheels of the three micro v plates.
Use one wheel for adjustment on each Mini v board.
The first is mini v plate_C. Insert the V-

In order to easily install the timing belt, prepare the timing belt 106 cm and cable tie the shaft motor unit to the left.
Use the thinnest hex wrench.
Insert the end of the timing belt into the hole on the left side of the mini v plate_C.
Insert the jagged surface of the timing belt up until 2-
It\'s 3 cm in the groove.
Fold the timing belt with a jagged surface.
Fix the timing belt using cable tie belt.
Place the bound part at the bottom.
* If the situation is not good, please cut the tie and try again with the new one. (
There are 10 more ties. )
Once one end of the timing belt is fixed, insert the other end into the hole on the right side of the Mini v platform c around x-
Shaft motor unit and timing pulley on the other side.
* Please make sure the timing belt is not twisted.
In the same way as before, fix the timing belt using cable tie belt.
* The rough length of the timing belt to leave is 2-3cm.
We\'ll adjust it later so you don\'t have to be too precise.
Cut off the rest of the two ties.
At this point it is OK to keep the timing belt a little loose.
Please make sure the timing pulley is on the x-
Axis motor is aligned with the track slot on V-slot.
If there is a gap, Please loosen the fixing screw on the timing pulley, adjust the position and tighten the screw again.
Next, release the fixed \"x-\" in order to extend the timing belt-

There is a slot between the rollers. )
Next, assemble the last side of the frame using the following parts.
First, insert two M5 T nuts in the hole outside. (
We will use these in future components to install the board housing. )
Second, as with the front, insert four M5 T nuts in each hole and put them into the frame.
Place the bracket on two corners and place the M5 T nut.
* Please make sure the m5 × 8 bow Bolt is tightened so that the frame does not deform when lifting.

The slot fits perfectly.
Make sure the timing pulley position matches the groove of V-slot.
If it is not aligned, loosen the fixing screw for the timing pulley, adjust the position, and tighten the fixing screw again.
The leg installation on this side is complete.
Repeat the same process and install a leg on the other side.
Make sure the timing pulley position matches the groove of V-slot.
If it is not aligned, loosen the fixing screw for the timing pulley, adjust the position, and tighten the fixing screw again.
The second round of installation is now completed.

Shaft, install timing belt using cable tie belt. (
In the picture, we put \"x-

Insert the timing belt from the top and insert the jagged surface inside.
Tighten the cable tie in the direction shown in the figure.
Once one side of the timing belt is fixed, turn the timing pulley and fix the other side with a cable tie.
When fixed with cable tie, try to tighten the belt. (
Please note that there is a limit on the tightness of the belt, allowing normal operation, so you don\'t need to pull too tight.
We will adjust the tightness later. )
The timing belt should be a bit loose at this time.
To tighten the belt, loosen the screw on the side of the idler wheel and tighten the screw again while pulling the belt in the direction shown in the figure.
You finish this side when the timing belt is tight.
Again, on the other side, after the timing belt is installed, pull the idler wheel to tighten the belt.
You\'re done with this.

Please adjust the appropriate height according to the thickness of the material.
Use height adjustment acrylic.
* Scratch protection sheet covered above.
Please remove it when using.
How to adjust Height1)
Place the material under the FABOOL laser Mini and place a highly adjustable acrylic resin on the material.
Then, put them under the laser device. 2)
Loosen the dial screw on the side of the user unit and lower the laser unit until the bottom touches the height-adjusted acrylic.
Tighten the dial screws on the side of the optical carrier.
After fixing, be sure to remove the height adjustment acrylic.
Please note that if the dial screws are not tight enough, the optical carrier may be released when cutting and engraving, and the laser unit may fall off.
