The MendelMax 1.5 plastic parts kit is the updated version of the MendelMax 3D printer design. The MendelMax 3D printer uses a stronger and more stable aluminum extrusion frame. The aluminum extrusion frame also allows for easy customization and modification.
This kit only includes the MendelMax 1.5 parts. The MendelMax 1.5 is able to use multiple types of X axis designs, so these parts are sold separatley. This design uses 8mm smooth rods in the X and Y axes and 10mm smooth rods for the Z axis.
This kit does not include: x-ends, x-carriage, extruder, z axis couplers, and y-axis bushing mounts. These parts are available in the MendelMax page as separate items. All of these parts are interchangable with multiple design outcomes.
As listed above, this kit allows for many interchangable parts for custom designs depending on what type of MendelMax you want to build. With some builds you will need to source parts elsewhere; however, to get a complete plastic parts kit through the LulzBot store, follow the list below. This list uses four 10mm SDP bronze bushings and eight 8mm pillow block bushings.
