is there a guide on how to assembly?(websites, blogs, anything?)

My Makerbot 1 is not big enough to print all files. Could you separate the parts out into individual files please?
Earl, I suggest you exercise your maker noodle, and do it yourself.

We supply all the parts in a convenient Sketchup format. With the newest version you can easily export your own .stl which will allow you to make custom print trays. Hope this helps!
