+
+
+
+== Assembly Instructions Overview ==
+
+This printer had bean a long time in the making.
+
+We strive to make the Kossel Pro and the OpenBeam Kossel Reprap to be as straightforward and easy to build as possible. All our cables pre-crimped with polarity keyed locking connectors, and use laser cut spacers to assist with loading the nuts into the proper position.
+
+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.
+
+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.
