MendelMax 1.5+ Printed Parts Kit
A kit* of printed parts to build a MendelMax 1.5+ 3D printer. All parts are printed in ABS with a layer height of .3mm. The parts require very little cleanup, which will save an hour or two from your building time. It takes extra care to print without a brim, but it saves you the time and hassle of removing the brims with blades and files. As an added bonus, it also gives your bot a clean, finished look.
STL files for these parts can be downloaded from Thingiverse: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:20355

*Please note, the MendelMax parts kit includes all of the plastic parts unique to the MendelMax design. The design does not specify X or Y axes, or the extruder. As a result, those parts are NOT included in most printed kits, since there are many options available. The MendelMax is compatible with a wide variety of parts for the Prusa and Mendel X and Y axes, and extruder. X ends are available here. If you would like a particular part printed for your X or Y axis, please send an email using the contact form to request a quote.
Wades extruder bodies and gears are available from BusyBotz by clicking here.
If this is your first 3D printer, the choices for plastic parts may be a bit confusing. The parts listed in this kit are used to build the MendelMax 1.5+ frame, including the Y axis rod mount and clasps. The parts you will still need are for the X axis and extruder. You can buy those parts from BusyBotz, and they are offered separately in case you already have them (if you are upgrading from a Prusa, for example) or have a particular design in mind. The X axis parts you will need are the two end pieces (Motor end, and Idler end), and the rod clamps that fit beneath the X ends. You will also need a carriage for the extruder, and of course parts for the extruder itself. If you have any questions, the answers are just a click away, we are here to help!
