WARNING: Make sure to protect the electronics against electrostatic discharge (ESD). Always unpack the electronics right before you need them!
Always touch the sides of the board while manipulating with it. Avoid touching the chips, capacitors and other parts of the electronics.
Before you touch the electronics use any conductive (steel) structure nearby to neutralize any electro-static energy.

Clothes made of wool and certain synthetic fabrics can easily gather static electricity. It is safer to wear cotton clothing.

3D printed parts are very precise, however, there still might be an occasional lack of uniformity in the printed part and same goes for the size of the nut.
Therefore it might happen, that the nut won't fit in easily or might be falling out. Let's see, how to fix it:
Nut keeps falling out: Use a piece of tape to fix the nut temporarily in place, as soon as you insert the screw in, you can remove the tape. Using glue isn't recommended as it can partly reach into the thread and you won't be able to tighten the screw properly.
Whenever you need to fit the nut that doesn't fit properly, we recommend using  "screw pulling technique". You will be reminded with Joe's avatar ;)

Always check the correct position of the M3nS nuts in the printed parts immediately after insertion. Improperly inserted nuts will not allow proper assembly of parts.
Make sure the nut is inserted all the way in. Use the following methods:
Use a 2.0mm Allen key for easier insertion into the hole.
Check the hole alignment by using a 2.0mm Allen key.
Check visually if the hole in the nut is aligned with the hole in the printed part.

Step 12 Reward yourself

Reward yourself
Reward yourself
Building the MINI+ printer is a challenge unlike any other and you should reward yourself for every milestone you reach. That is why a bag of Haribo Bears is included!
The biggest issue from the previous builds (MK3S+, SL1) which we had to address was inadequate bear consumption. Many of you didn't have enough bears for all chapters, some even ate them all before they started!
始める前に、または一度にすべてのクマを食べないでください! 指示に従わないと深刻な結果を招きます。現在、この問題のためにPrusa Haribo 戦術部隊PrusaHariboを編成しています。
Hide the Haribo for now! From our experience, an unattended bag with sweets tends to suddenly disappear. We are still investigating this phenomenon.
All information provided in this step is based on a long-term very serious research study ;)

Step 13 正しく組み立てる方法

To successfully finish the assembly please complete each of the following:
Always read all the instructions at the current step first. This will help you to understand, what you need to do. Don't cut or trim unless you are told to!!!
Don't follow pictures only! It is not enough, the written instructions are as brief as they can be. Read them.
Read the comments from the other users. They are a great source of ideas. We read them too and based on your feedback improve the manual and the entire assembly.
Use a reasonable force. The printed parts are tough, but not unbreakable. If it doesn't fit, check your approach twice.
最も重要なこと: 組み立てを楽しんでください。お子様、友達、パートナーと一緒に協力してください。 ただし、私たちは争い事には一切責任を負いません;)
