Anyone have a decent assembly manual for the openbuild OX CNC?

    Purchased the large OX CNC from openbuild. Arrived today, one of the plates is nicked and requires filing, but no big deal. Besides not including a 5mm tap (you'd think it would be listed somewhere on the website considering its involved with the very first step (edit, just saw that it was, oops)), the instructions are horrible. First step: lay out the extrusions. How? In what pattern? Picture isn't nearly big enough to see, and there isn't any diagram to show how they orient with each other.

    All I can find online is the ooznest assembly manual, which is exactly what I'm looking for in terms of detail and clarity, but that's not what I bought.

    Has someone made a new one?

    Thanks for the link! I saw that video before but after skimming through I saw it wasn't in any sort of order so I didn't think much of it...going back I see it has parts, but not in the same order as the assembly guide sent with the parts.

    Bouncing back and forth between the video and the hard copy has got me about half way after a few hours, so all is well now.
