Let's get all instructions of all sets ever made as PDF, together!
I would like to have all instructions of all sets as PDF. And I want to have them all stored on my computer, so I can access them anytime, immediately, even when I am offline. And I am pretty sure that there are more people like me who share the same wish. Maybe someone has already accomplished that goal, but I couldn't find anyone, so I am starting this thread, hoping to find some people who are willing to join me in my efforts.
I know that (almost) every instructions ever made are to find online somewhere. But some are very hard to find, some are in very poor quality, some are one-file-per-page (very annoying), some are watermarked beyond readability... - I don't want this anymore!
So last week I started by batch-downloading all instructions currently available at LEGO.com. It's 7810 files and 64.7 GB of data. I renamed all files to also show set-number and set name, for example "3936-1 (6006136) (Emma's Fashion Design Studio)". Additionally I added some PDFs I created from single-page-per-file sources. For example I downloaded all 16 images of the instructions of set 928-1, created a single PDF file containing all these 16 pictures and saved it as "928-1 (Space Cruiser And Moonbase)".
The ultimate goal is to have all instructions of all sets available like this...
Is anyone interested in joining me in my efforts? (Details of how to proceed could/should be discussed together...)
