To build a standard size LC Printrbot, follow these instructions, in order. The parts fit together very tightly, and are difficult to take apart without damage.

Since the LC and PB+ are almost identical save for the base width, it may be helpful to look at the Printrbot LC+ Assembly instructions too.
