#MakiBox A6 - Instructions First Glance

It is hard to make things simple.

Z-Axis Assembly Instructions

This is the first of the instruction manual we are making around the production design. There are around 8-10 of these steps, and we are seeing that the total assembly time should take less than 2 hours for many people.

Will there be numbers at the screws and small parts with a BOM ? k.r. Martin

@Jens - We will, I'm just getting the designer rolling, so we just have this first view available now, and it is just a concept version and will be updated more before the final version. When we have the full workflow, we will post it online for sure.

@Wesley - Yep, but that is how we roll. :)

@Martin - Yes, each section will detail what parts are needed for that step.

It seems very straightforward to assemble the printer using these instructions. Nice work ! Being a CAD user myself, I'm quite interested by your workflow: Do you export the 3D views from SolidWorks to a layout software ?

Looks great!!!
But still useful to have videos ;)

Gotta love SolidWorks' contour rendering feature :D

@Felix - We make the line art via Solidworks drawings, but then clean them up and do more to them in Adobe Illustrator. There are a lot of extra lines in the SW export to start with.

@Evan - We will have a short video for each step.

@Cris - Yep, I've been using it for this kind of thing for close to 10 years.

Nicely done Jon. It looks wonderful. I'm getting very excited to see this become a huge success.
