    • Complete this stage:

    • If you are upgrading from an already built Proforge 2/2S Single Extruder setup.

    • Skip this stage and continue here:

    • If you are building the Dual Switching Extruder from the Proforge 2/2S build guides

  1. Push the Extruder Carriage out as far as it will go. Use cable ties to bunch together the cables up to the Z-axis Bracket. Raise the gantry to its highest position on the frame.
    • Push the Extruder Carriage out as far as it will go.

    • Use cable ties to bunch together the cables up to the Z-axis Bracket.

    • Raise the gantry to its highest position on the frame.

    • Use cable ties to bunch together all of the cables down to the base and feed into the base through the square hole.

  2. Connect the 2nd filament sensor cable to the touch screen. Connect the 2nd extruder motor cable to the main board in the E1 position.
    • Connect the 2nd filament sensor cable to the touch screen.

    • Connect the 2nd extruder motor cable to the main board in the E1 position.

  3. Connect the Hotend heater cables to the electronics board. Unplugging the print fan cable for the board should give you better access.
    • Connect the Hotend heater cables to the electronics board.

    • Unplugging the print fan cable for the board should give you better access.

    • If you're struggling to the get the cables in, removing the electronics board from the base will give you better access to the terminals.

  4. Connect the hotends thermistor to the electronics board (TH2). Connect the hotends fan cables directly to the power supply terminals.
    • Connect the hotends thermistor to the electronics board (TH2).

    • Connect the hotends fan cables directly to the power supply terminals.

    • Red to Positive

    • Black to Negative

  5. Cable tie together the Hotend cables making sure not to have any sharp bends in the cables. Tuck the cables in between the side panel and power supply. Cable tie the cables to the power supply to hold in place.
    • Cable tie together the Hotend cables making sure not to have any sharp bends in the cables.

    • Cable tie the cables to the power supply to hold in place.

  6. Connect the servo cable to the electronics board like shown.
    • Connect the servo cable to the electronics board like shown.

  7. Prepare the A4988 Stepper Driver by sticking the heatsink to the black chip on the driver. Make sure that the heatsink is not touching any of the pins. Orient the fins of the heatsink as shown. Adjust the trimpot so that the flat side is facing left, like shown in the second image.

    • Make sure that the heatsink is not touching any of the pins. Orient the fins of the heatsink as shown.

    • Adjust the trimpot so that the flat side is facing left, like shown in the second image.

    • Fix the stepper driver onto the electronics board, matching the orientation shown in the third image.

    • Installing a stepper driver the wrong way round will destroy it.

  8. Use cable ties to loop and tie the loose cables. Cable tie this loop to the original loop.
    • Use cable ties to loop and tie the loose cables.
