How to use this document
7
1) The steps are listed in an order that works.
8
2) The values in the "After Step" column indicate the steps that should be done before the step on that row. If you re-order steps, make sure that you don't place a step before its predecessors or you might find yourself stuck.
9
3) If you plan to build multiple modules then it's worth consolidating the parts lists for those modules into one to minimize splitting orders to a given vendor and hence reduce shipping costs.
