[title] Base Frame Part 2
[* black] The two Z motor mounts attach to the frame one on each side near the rear. You can measure the distance of 88.5 or you can align the motor mounts to the 2040 Z extrusion that mounts to the side of the frame.
[* black] You can also temporarily install the 2040 Extrusion onto the Side Plate Frame and use a small square to align the Z motor plate to center of the 2040 extrusion or you can measure as detailed here.
[* black] With the frame at this point you can install the 4 rubber feet to the bottom of the frame in the slot of the 2020 extrusions. You can assemble the foot as below (using M5-14 screws) and slide the foot from the back of the printer into place.
