Thingiverse comment:
An updated version of the MendelMax 3d Printer. Nearly every printed part on the bot has been updated to make the assembly easier and faster and the printer more accurate.

Major upgrades include easier to assemble lower vertexes, Lower mounted Z motor mounts, an improved Y axis belt tensioner system, and easy to align Z axis smooth rod mounts.

NOTE: While I do not consider this a work in progress, it is still not widely tested. I recommend this design even for new users, but if you prefer a rock solid well tested design you may prefer the original MendelMax.

The Bill of Materials is available. Note that except for the bushings, at present it does not include the components for the X carriage or extruder. That BoM is for the kit as supplied by, other variants may require other components.

You can download the full STL file set in the first zip file. It is current as of 3/30/2012, but be sure to download any later files separate from the zip file.

To see the full model in 3d, download the MendelMax 1.5 PDF file and open with Adobe Acrobat (most 3rd party PDF viewers do not suppport 3d PDF files).

The source files are available in the MendelMax 1.5 Alibre file, and are editable with Alibre CAD.

Laser Cut Y Axis

Laser cut Y axis frame for MendelMax

Laser cut from 6.35mm (1/4″) wood.

Note: The heated table rests directly on top of the carraige, so this should be cut from wood only. Plastic will melt and warp.
