[title] Install the top on the towers
[* black] IGNORE THIS STEP FOR NOW, it needs to be updated and a step or 2 inserted before this one.
[*
icon_note] The top assembly must be installed with the labels you applied facing up.up and the '''X''', '''Y''' and '''Z '''corners aligned with the base '''X''', '''Y''' and '''Z''' corners.
[* icon_caution]
The idler pulley holes in the bracket cross piecestop brackets must be closest to the bottom of the frameframe as indicated in the photo.
[* red] Align the T-nuts and carefully lower the top assembly onto the towers. Wiggle"Wiggle and jigglejiggle" the T-nuts until the top assembly slides over both T-nuts in each corner bracket.

[* icon_note] It helps to have a helper with this step but it can be done alone if you align the T-nuts and work slowly.
[* red] AlignAllow the top of the towers to be even withprotrude about 8mm (5/16") from the top surface of the top assembly. This does not have to be perfect, "close" is good enough. Secure but do not tighten the screws – they will be tightened laterin the next step when you tension the belts.
[* icon_note] Make sure the ''LED wires'' exiting the '''Z''' tower are free and not pinched as shown in the second photo. Also make sure that the top does not interfere with the ''endstop brackets'' - if so, loosen the mounting screw and lower it.
