The X Tower will be the first tower to be installed. This tower is the one with the extruder and whip pre-installed. To begin, you will want to elevate the printer's upper assembly so it is up higher than the length of the rail. For our assembly we used the box that the upper assembly came in, or a workbench height table.

If you have not done so at this point, you'll want to make sure you remove the 1/4-20 x 1" long button head screws, split ring washer, and flat washer from the end of the tower for the following steps. The same goes for all other towers as you get to them.

Ensure that the end-stop legs are bent over at a 45 degree angle as shown in the picture. Check at all 3 tower locations in the upper assembly.

You will want to grasp all the wires that are exiting the top of the X tower and push the bundle down in the relief that is cut into the T-Slot. Pushing down on the wires will help create a little memory in the wiring.

You will now want to feed the bundle of wires in through the opening in the side of the sheet metal enclosure.
