Revision to Kossel Pro 3D Printer

-== Change Log ==
-
-Kossel Pro V1.1:
-
-(ZT-KIT-00255)
-
-The cu rrent kit shipping configuration is ZT-KIT-00255, Kossel Pro V1.1. These kits now ship with fully assembled ball joint arms; we glue these on a machined aluminum fixture for better accuracy and eliminate one of the support variables for users getting good prints.
-
-Kits now ship with a K-Head instead of a J-Head. This allows the use of higher temperature filament and makes the thermistor end user serviceable.
== Assembly Instructions Overview ==
The instructions below are given specifically for the Kossel Pro machine. The Reprap branch follows the same build sequence.
-For Kossel Pro kits with kit # ZT-KIT-00255, the ball joints are already pre-glued on a machined fixture for you. These ball joints are in a box labelled Kossel Common Core Component Kit. Earlier kits can follow the instructions for gluing the ball joints.

+# [guide|15|Linear Drive Towers] requires borrowing the upper machined vertex from the Upper Triangle sub assembly for spacing the end stop holders.
+# Next build the following sub assemblies; these sub assemblies require gluing. It is a good idea to get through the gluing process started, then work on another sub assembly until all the glue has cured. For best results, allow 24 hours for the Loctite 410 adhesive included in the kit to dry / de-gas, before proceeding.
