Started working on the assembly of part 2. Confused on line 7 regarding "Tighten down the 2 set screws" as I only notice 1 set screw on the GT2 pulley. Also confused as to whether line 8 is a repeat of line 5 from part 1? (2hrs) File:EPA universal axis motor side part2.fcstd

Apr 26, 2017

Made animations of the universal axis motor side part for the 3d printer. Had trouble with FreeCAD crashes while animating part so now trying FreeCAD on more powerful Desktop computer vs my laptop. (3 hours) File:EPA universal axis motor side part1.fcstd

Apr 17-23, 2017

Worked on axis motor side FreeCAD file. Found out nut catchers were on the opposite side of the part -my bad. So far have assembled part 1. Next is to perform the exploded part assembly. File:EPA universal axis motor side part1.fcstd

Apr 10-17, 2017

Worked on axis motor side FreeCAD file for roughly 7 hours. Had trouble interpreting script while creating FreeCAD drawings. Uploaded work thus far for CAD file.

File:Ongoing Universal axis motor side.fcstd
