Marty Images

Build Guide

Before you begin:

Study the Parts Guide and check you’ve got everything you’ll need. Some parts look similar but are slightly different – for example, the servo motors all look very similar but are actually all different. Look at their labels to distinguish them.

Also check you have the correct tools:

  • The screwdriver supplied within your Marty kit fits all the bolts and screws you’ll need
  • Tweezers can be helpful when putting smaller parts together

Please note that we’ve thrown in some spares for the nuts & bolts, so if you end up with extras once you’ve finished, you haven’t missed a step!

In this build guide each of the step by step images have the fixings you require labelled with a orange circle and a letter. Use the Fixings Key in your printed Part or Build Guide to make sure you are using the right fixing, in the correct place.
