Today we worked on the Thing-O-Matic’s Y Stage. (The Automated Build Platform we built yesterday was X Stage.) Y Stage will contain the mechanisms that make the build platform move side-to-side and back and forth. Here we just finished assembling Y Stage’s belt and bearings.

This is the Y Stage housing in mid-assembly. The steel rods have been passed through the build platform and attached to the Y Stage housing. The ABP’s timing belt is being attached to the Y Stage motor.
