The beginning of the Gantry drag chain is 2.5" off Y1 Rail Carriage. Does not seem to be long enough, please see attached pictures. After starting the hello world test things got a little shakey lol no problem. Not sure if I need more tension on the Z-axis belt tensioner. The drag chain is pretty tight in the pictures on the right side.
Despite my best efforts I did not offset the Gantry drag chain towards the back enough and got caught up on the X-axis limit switch anyway. I guess I will need more VHB remount the drag chain with a greater offset. Was a note missed on the placement of that or is it just the OCD that makes us want the drag chain to run on top of the gantry?
I am beginning to wonder if the wiring harness got switched up, I would still like to confirm that before I break it down. If anyone has a link or expected dimension of the drag chain that may be helpful.
I found the metal bracket limiting due to the Gantry drag chain not having a lot of play for and aft. The bracket really squares that drag chain up.
I know Carbide will be there to help but I like cutting to the chase with what the community is recommending. I am new to the hobby but I am studying Construction Management and Engineering at Purdue North West so I am up for the challenge!
