Introduction

The V-Motion Lite can be assembled on any V-Slider or V-Slider Mini. There are two alternative ways of assembling:

  • Standard assembly: motor shaft points down. You should use this assembly if the head you’re mounting on your slider’s carriage has a diameter of less than 10 cm.
  • Reversed assembly: motor shaft points up. You should use this assembly if the head you are mounting on your slider’s carriage has a diameter of 10 cm or more, otherwise you might not be able to mount the head in place as the motor will be in the way. This assembly involves additional steps and is not compatible with the V-Slider Leg Kit(tripod use only).

    • Finish screwing the Knob to lock the T-Nut in place.

    • Cut off the remaining length of the Belt. You’re done!
