+[title] Tension the Belts
+[* black] The belts in the Rostock MAX v3 are tensioned by rotating the stepper motor towards the center of the printer.
+[* black] If you've pulled the belt tight when installing the last belt retaining clip, you only need to add a little more tension to the belt. Rotate the stepper motor so it's about 1/4 the way across the screw slot and tighten all four screws. Do this for each stepper motor.
+[* icon_note] Note that you don't want the belts to be so tight you can pluck them like a guitar string. The more you tighten the belt, the harder the motor has to work in order to move the carriage.
