LC Kit - Which direction is X and which is Y?

Postby allanonmage » 2013-Feb-Sat-17-Feb

The only reason I know what Z is is because it has 2 motors. My initial thought was that the Z axis was Y, so obviously any guess on my part is not going to be accurate.

I'm trying to get my kit wired up and I'm not sure where to plug in a few of the parts. I found this:

and I've goten all but the last 2 motors and end stops connected.

Started with a Printrbot LC Kit; now it's a monster as big as a mid size fridge!
Single ATX Power supply, 650 watts, relay controlled heat bed
extra Z height (3+ ft) via longer rods, but I don't use it. Yet. To reduce wobble, I'm using thing:46082 under the Printrbot.
Dual heated beds, 1 currently working; space for a 3rd
Purple gluestick on glass seems to be sticky enough to get adhesion

This was supposed to be a tool, not a series of projects... grrrrr......

Y is forward and back (movement of the heated base)
X is left and right (movement of the printhead)
