Introduction

There are some prerequisites that you need to accomplish before starting the assembly.

[block:api-header] { "type": "basic", "title": "1. Read This Before You Start Assembling" } [/block] 1. Make sure to always pre-drill the holes that you are going to screw screws in. The drill size should be close to the diameter of the screw you are about to use. 2. Make sure that before getting to the Stage 2 Step 4: Complete the assembly of the Spine Box , you are aware that your motor controller is configured and will not require to be connected to a computer via cable. 4. All support material from the 3D Printed parts needs to be removed before starting assembly. 5. 3D Printed parts can be painted or clear coated to keep their visual looks better Imperfect prints should be replaced as they may endanger your safety 6. Sometimes 3D Printed parts need to be fine touched with a knife in juncture place where two or more pieces come together. 7.
