Locate the magnetic ball arms, they are packed in a protective cardboard wrap.

Note that one end of each arm has a label indicating its finished length. Pair the arms so each pair are the same length. Small differences of +/- .01mm are normal.

Attach a pair of arms to each carriage. I prefer to put the labeled end nearest the carriage.

Orient the effector with the extruder stepper motor facing the Z tower as shown in the second photo and attach it to the arms.

The arms must be parallel to the effector. Make sure to attach them to the correct set of balls – the set that points to the carriages.

Take a moment to step back and delight in the beauty of a delta printer.

The second photo shows the installed effector and proper routing of the whip.
