I filed the vertex frame thoroughly where the motor and the aluminum extrusions are mounted. Also I cleaned up the screw holes of motor mount which takes M3 cap screw using a small round file. In two occasions I had experienced stuck M3 cap screw which wouldn’t turn after few millimeters in.
This was the easiest way to mount the motor on the vertex frame.
Stand the motor up on flat surface, then put the vertex frame on top of it.
Hand tight the four M3 cap screws using combination of thumb, index and middle fingers of both hands until the the screws won’t turn.
And then tighten the screws one by one using 2.5 mm Allen wrench.
