Our RepRap Mendel
We have been having fun with out MakerBot Cupcakes and decided to print and build a RepRap Mendel. I decided to use the new fluorescent Red ABS from MakerBot to build our “Big Red Printing Machine. Check back in a day or two for pictures and a write up on our process.
We decided to stick with the MakerBot Electronics because we were familiar with it and the software and we already had a spare extruder controller so that would save us some time and money. W also decided to go with the new Printruder to start with and the geared motor used on the MakerBots. We will probably progress to the stepper motor type extruder at a later date.
