In this step, we will finish tensioning the belt. Please read the instructions first, your belt might have proper tension already.
⬢First, slightly release all the screws holding the motor, otherwise, the upper "tensioner" won't work (the motor must be able to move).
ATTENTION !!! BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL WHILE TIGHTENING, YOU CAN CRACK THE PART IF YOU OVERTIGHT THE SCREW.
⬢Using Allen key start tightening the M3x18 screw inside the X-end-motor, but after each turn or two check the tension in the belt.
⬢In Step 14, you were asked to have the belt a bit less stretched, however, for the optimal performance, the belt must be a bit harder to press with your fingers. Move the X-carriage all the way to the X-end-idler and try the belt tension in the middle of the X-axis.
⬢When you achieve optimal tension, please tighten the screws again.
In case you experience X-axis failure during calibration or skipped layers in the X direction, you can adjust this screw accordingly. Tightening the screw stretches the belt. Releasing the screw has opposite effect. Each time don't forget to release the screws on the motor first.
