[title] Connect the stepper motors
[* icon_note] We're going to use the installed connectors at this point to verify that everything is working correctly. Later we will replace these connectors with the correct polarized connectors.
[* red] The connectors on the stepper motor wiring harness have two ridges on one side. We've highlighted those with black marker in the first photo. Use an X-acto knife to trim them off of the '''X''', '''Y''' and '''Z''' stepper connectors. Don't worry about routing the stepper harnesses neatly at this point, we'll do that later.

[* red] Connect the stepper motors to the Duet as shown in Photo 2.
[* red] Start with the '''Z''' stepper, then the '''Y''' and finally the '''X'''.
[* red] Make sure to orient the wires as shown with the blue wire on the right side of the connector.
[* icon_caution] Check your connections to the Duet to make sure the '''X''', '''Y''' and '''Z''' steppers are connected to the correct positions as shown in the second photo.
