I've browsed around their site a lot, and I have the same question.
Especially considering the fact that I'm trying to start from scratch- I have access to a decent machine shop and I would like to start making parts, but I can't find a good description!
You'd think someone would have put up a "getting started" package for people in my situation: a single zip file with a BoM divided into three neat categories (electronics, mechanical parts you need to make, and mechanical parts you need to buy), the firmware and software you need to run the machine once you get it started (or the download sites for those), and a nice set of prints detailing the parts (either in .pdf format or SketchUp, or both).
I guess I'll just have to dig up all that crap, box it up and put it on their site. Bah.
