[title] TensioningPreparing to tension the belts
[* red] Working onicon_caution] This is experimental but we believe we have a good, reproducible way to describe thisset belt tension! Let's give it a try.
[* icon_note] This method uses an app called EasyTension produced by Hutchinson Transmission. You can get it for iOS and Android so head to your favorite App Store and download it (it's free).
[* red] When you first run EasyTension you will see the screen in the first photo, click on the blue Frequency Meter and the frequency measurement panel will display as shown in the second screen capture.
[* icon_note] This process is impossible to photograph so read through it and it should make sense.
[* red] Position all three carriages at the the very bottom of the printer so they touch the base. You will be measuring the vibrational frequency of the side of the belt that is ++not connected++ to the carriage
