I am Trying To Build Mendel
December 12, 2010 08:34AM
Hello.

I am from Miri Sarawak.

I'm trying to build RepRap II Mendel.

Right now I am still reading and gathering information about the electronics I need.

I found out this forum section after being pointed out by Sebastien from my thread, Building Mendel - Circuit Board Construction.

I am glad there are Malaysian already into this, so I can seek guidance from you guys.

So, tell me guys.

My plan is to produce the orignal Mendel by buying the materials parts by parts since I believe it is already engineered and optimized to its best.

I am very glad if someone could enlighten me in this "journey". smileys with beer

Hmmm ... http://reprap.org/wiki/What_Tooling_Do_You_Have? smiling bouncing smiley


-Sebastien, RepRap.org library gnome.

Remember, you're all RepRap developers (once you've joined the super-secret developer mailing list), and the wiki, RepRap.org, [reprap.org] is for everyone and everything! grinning smiley

Thanks for the link.
It seems that I'll stick to the original Mendel.

Let us know how you do and if you have a build blog, please link to it.

I have put my project on back burners but gotten a few very nice parts for
the metal repstrap, ie the machine suppose to boot strap to a reprap Mendel
or other designs.

Mendel design still can be optimized further. While the X axis is more rigid, the Y axis
design seems less rigid and can do with more cross bracing. Weight of carriage and
extruder assembly and speed of operation may determine how much the "wobble"
on the Y axis. Based on videos I have seen of Mendels in operation, it doesn't seem
to be a problem.

Hi,

I am Lucus from Singapore, I actually have a single PCB controller board for the Reprap machine.
Anyone interested may want to contact me at 65-84981876 or drop me a mail at lucuslim.sw@gmail.com .

Cheers to all Reprappers.

Hi wgn_white

Tell me how it went?

I'm also starting to build RepRap but the Prusa. I'm from Thailand and want to share my experience in building one.

Please let me know if you can print some parts and send me to thailand. I'll need Mendel Prusa and Wade's Extruder Plastic Parts.

Regards,

Hi Kamarul,

I have a working Prusa Mendel here near Penang. Can pm me if you need help with parts. It's not so difficult building one here in Malaysia. I'll post some pics soon...

Hi Kamarul,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. To be honest with you, I was trying to figure out the costs myself smiling smiley...

I probably spent a lot more due to trial and error and having to buy in small quantities from different suppliers. I have calculated the cost excluding electronics (Arduino Mega, Ramps 1.4, Pololu Stepper drivers, PCB heated bed) and hot-end to come out around RM780.

I estimate that if you bought the electronics (say from Ultimachine or ebay) and hot-end yourself, it would cost you probably another RM750.

I can sell the ABS printed parts including Greg's hinged extruder for around RM270, if you're interested.

Cheers,
KFB

hi kfb,
the cost is not so bad, below 2k is a good investment...Im interested to buy a complete kit or fully assembled. How much will u charge.smileys with beer...

Hi Kamarul,

I am glad to hear someone agrees with me that it is a good investment. Apart from giving the ability to make and possibly sell stuff, it's an invaluable tool to learn how to design stuff. Not forgetting, great fun too!

I will send you a PM for further details.

Photo of recently completed Mendelmax print. It was quite a marathon. Total print time: ~50 hours and a bit more if failed prints included...

Hie, I'm new to reprap and thinking to build a prusa mendel or mendelmax. Can I know the different between the two? Where can I get the complete set (either one) in Malaysia specifically around KL or Shah Alam? Anyone selling a complete set?

I also like to know people that involve in this project from Malaysia. PM or email me at nurfazley@yahoo.com.

MendelMax 1.5 complete kit shipped from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia right here at http://blomker.com/product.php?id_product=24

Priced at RM1,999 - it is the most affordable MendelMax kit out there.

Bro,

Saya ada extra MMax 1.5 plastic set (Puchong). Kalau nak boleh PM. Prusa Mendel dan MendelMax adik beradik, beza pada frame. Satu guna aluminium satu lagi rod. Pada pandangan saya frame MMax lagi kukuh.

Selamat membina.
