    I am at the point where I need to mount the extruder to the Z mount unit… I have the extruder mount BUT
    How does it lower and raise? Its fixed to the two bars so why wouldn’t we mount to the Z assembly?
    What am I missing?

    Hi James, the metal bars are what move on the z assembly. The plastic parts with the bearings are locked onto the X and Y crosspieces, and the Z tower – made up of the two metal bars, the stepper motor on top, the tool on the bottom, and the lead screw in the middle – move up and down.
