Building guide for an educational LEGO mock-up WDPR

WDPR LEGO CAD model CAD model, click to get the building guide.

For educational purposes, a LEGO mock-up has been designed and built in the COPRIN team. I created a building guide in the hopes it brings this mock-up WDPR in everybody's reach, specially young children as it's more or less the indented audience.
