Installed the base diagonals. Pretty straightforward. The tie brackets from BitsFromBytes don't have embedded nuts but the intent is to tighten the nuts on the diagonals until the plastic distorts enough to grip the uprights. Seems to work just fine.

Spliced together a Z belt. Ended up sanding down the belts before gluing them together. Seems to hold better that way. Used a blob of polymorph to make a splicer.

Wrapped a zip tie around the Z motor to hold it steady.
