posts / I Accidentally A 3d Printer 8/21/2018


And after all those years of making fun of 3d printers. I was just looking for stepper motors on craigslist when I found this Reprap MendelMax, for $50. These were made around 2011 or so.

I enjoy how it has an absurd contraption/fire hazard type of look, the opposite of the sleek, cool looking 3d printers that are manufactured nowadays. I might have to spend some time figuring this thing out, now that I am doing projects where having custom parts would make my life easier.

I've never been crazy about how parts made with these things look kind of like they are made of spaghetti, but I guess if we're talking brackets and spacers, it's not so bad. Here's some pictures.
