Each Modix kit includes a physical copy as well as links to online assembly instructions. These instructions will walk you through the assembly process with detailed textual and visual step-by-step instructions. Online guides also feature video demonstrations for every step as well as rotatable 3D Models of the various sub-assemblies making the assembly process straight-forward and highly intuitive.
