Insertion devices as radiation sources on storage rings offer potential for substantial gains in beam brightness and flux delivered to a sample. Achieving these gains, however, requires several new aspects of beam line design. New aspects of beam line design arise from the high beam power, the complex spectral and geometrical characteristics, and the need for a wide spectral range. We discuss these aspects of insertion device soft X-ray synchrotron radiation beam lines with examples drawn from our project creating Beam Line Wunder at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory. The major research use envisioned for this beam line is for spectroscopic experiments which require the highest possible intensity and resolution for a tunable constant deviation source. The current status is summarized of each of the beam line major components the Multi-undulator, the transport system, the Locust Monochromator, the computer control system, and the experimental area.
