    • Your BoXZY houses its electronics in an aluminum electronics enclosure with mounted fans.

    • The X Axis Stepper Motor Belt is in a CNC-machined aluminum casing.

    • The Y Axis Stepper Motor Belt Cover is on the left side of your BoXZY, when looking at it from behind.

    • The Filament Drive System (shown by green arrows in the first and second images) is mounted and open to allow easy access to it.

    • Y Axis Maximum Limit Switch (second image)

    • X Axis Minimum (Origin) Limit Switch (third image)

    • X Axis Maximum Limit Switch (first image)

    • The BoXZY Attachment Mount has a Locking Clamp (second image). When unclamped, you can slide BoXZY's Attachment Heads in. When clamped, the Attachment Heads are locked in.

    • The Locking Clamp has a Lock Adjustment Knob (second image).

  5. Your BoXZY uses a vertically moving Milling Platform with  drilled holes that allow for custom fixturing and workholding. On the Milling Platform there are three Leveling Bolts with springs (shown by purple arrows in the first image). These are used to precisely adjust the Leveling Platform (not pictured) that is installed on top of the Milling Platform as a 3D printing/laser etching surface.
