Mendel Progress!

I’m building a RepRap Mendel 3d printer, using parts printed for me by my friend Marty on Makerbot 131, and hardware from ultimachine. Tonight’s project was to assemble all of the pieces that I could. I was able to get the X and Z stages built, mounted together, and roughly calibrated. The next steps are to get a build platform laser cut so that I can complete the Y stage, finish up the electronics so that I can control the machine, and decide on an extruder design so that I can actually use it to print. It’s starting to get exciting!
