I have the Mindstorms NXT 1 kit. It includes a printout of the first robot model building plans. The plans for several other robots (e.g. the scorpion bot) are included in the NXT software. However when I run the software, everything works, but it does not display the building instructions, only the programming instructions. Can I download those plans somewhere?

Official building instructions for NXT 1 models can be downloaded here:

you can get almost every building instruction directly from lego - just type in the set number.

for 8527 (wich seems to be your set) there are 7 downloads available (note: i'm not sure if the ones you're looking for are contained, because i don't know the set - but they should be there).

Thank you. But unfortunately that link only supplies me with the printouts that where contained in the set (seven downloads for seven languages). What I need are those instructions that are only digitally in the NXT software. – Till B Dec 30 '11 at 12:04
too bad, sorry. but i'll leave my answer here for future visitors who might look for this. – oezi Dec 30 '11 at 13:03
