Is the BOM primarily documented here or on github? We should not double document this and have the documentations inveitably fall out of synch. Either the git BOM should be deleted and replaced by a link to the wiki or vise versa, but having both can only lead to confusion IMHO. --TheOtherRob 16:13, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

The BOM is primarily documented here, until completed. Then it will move to the git. The picture was re-inserted to provide a link to the bigger version, this is not possible with the side-block, or do you know the way?. --Sikko 29 October 2010

Good point, I made the image clickable for all developments now.. not really sure why I didn't do that in the first place but it's fixed now. If the BOM is here can a placeholder be put in the github text linking to this location. That way people don't get confused by an out of date BOM at github. --TheOtherRob 18:09, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

Assembly Pictures Needed

Ok, I am working on a Prusa with a friend at my lab and we plan to photo document the process unless someone else has already done this (?)

PS. if you have done this already lets use this space to build the assembly documentation without messing up the main page (I'll post it back over once it's more final).

Here's my working notes for the assembly process so far:

Assembling the frame triangle (2x)

This is the side of the Prusa RepRap, you will need to make 2 of these and then connect them together (see next step) to form the Prusa frame:

  • 2 footed frame vertices
  • 1 frame vertex (non-footed)
  • 1 bottom bar holder thingy (TODO: proper name)
  • 3 threaded rods (TODO: length)

(I have a pic of the assembled vertices)

Assembling the frame

Now we need to connect the 2 frame triangles to form the Prusa RepRap frame.

..I will be updating this as I build the Prusa and get pics off my friends phone.
