Prusa Mendel RepRap 3D printer

This page will list the progress of my Prusa Mendel RepRap 3D printer build. Its something I started working on in the christmas holidays of 2011. I Did look into it about a year or more before and was planning to build the original Darwin version

My plan is to build it out of parts i have laying around such as wood and later when the thing works print out better frame brackets and joints.

 

Status: so far i have about 90% of the frame built and am starting to prototype the electronics
