Intro / Overview

(click the picture to download the PDF file)

Wikis are great! However, sometimes it's not convenient or logistically possible to have a computer where you are doing a major mechanical assembly. In an attempt to help everyone out, we're providing a basic set of build instructions in PDF format. You can download that document here.

Wikis are great because they let us share our knowledge with each other, so we're going to attempt a 'hybrid' model of physical / wiki documentation.

Here's what we want you to do.

  1. Download the build instructions show above. Print them out if you wish. (but please recycle when you're done.)
  2. Use the physical document to help guide you through the assembly.
  3. As you come across questions or problems do two things:
    1. Check the wiki for your answer. There is a link on the left side of the page that corresponds to each step in the process.
    2. If you can't find your answer on the wiki, ask it in the forum (we've very responsive!)
    3. After you have found the answer you're looking for, add it to the wiki!

See how that works? It's full circle!

Also, if you're into technical writing, I've created the PDF document in scribus v1.4.1 and the original source is available on github under the project's repository.

After we've collected enough 'updates' via the wiki, we'll roll them back into the released PDF document. Because scribus is open source software, and cross platform compatible, everyone should be able to help out if that's their cup of tea.


As with the rest of the pages on the wiki, please feel free to edit this one!

For the Inventables kit batches 2 and 3, please take note that the panels are different than pictured. The batch 1 panels were painted red, which interfered with hole sizes. Batches 2 and 3 have brushed stainless steel panels.


The panels have a protective film on one side that can be peeled off, and any residue left behind comes off easily with goo-gone or rubbing alcohol. Also note that there are small nubs on the surface from the plates left over from laser cutting. They can be removed, but will not interfere with assembly or use.
