Share this Article

mm4If you are at all familiar with the RepRap movement, you’ve certainly heard of the MendelMax brand of 3D printers. The original MendelMax was designed and constructed by Maxbots way back in December of 2011, and has since laid the framework for several versions of the original machine. This includes the MendelMax 1.5, 1.5+ and 2.0. All subsequent versions have built upon the original groundwork to create quite a robust, yet simple machine.

MendelMax 3D printer kits are known for their easy construction, as well as their sturdy, yet simple Cartesian-based frames. This week, Maker’s Took Works, a company formed by the original designer of the machine, MaxBots, has announced the release of the MendelMax 3.

“Makers Tool Works is excited to bring you the Mendelmax 3. With thousands of hours of development and testing stretching over nearly a year, the new MendelMax raises the bar for what you can expect from Maker’s Tool Works,” states the company on their website. “We have meticulously evaluated every aspect of the design to ensure that you are receiving a printer that is much easier to build and will perform better with minimal tuning and maintenance.”

The 3D printer, which features very high quality components and materials, includes a brand new advanced linear motion system to ensure extremely precise motion. The machine’s sleek design and colorful LED lighting make it suitable for any area of the home or the workplace. The LEDs aren’t just for show. They provide feedback prior to, and during, the print process, with custom programmable indicators to provide diagnostics which make fabricating objects a bit more exciting, as well as simplifying the entire process. Below you will find some of the specifications for this new machine:mm5

  • Build Envelope: 250 x 315 x 197mm
  • Maximum Print Speed: 80-150+ mm/sec (Depends on material)
  • Filament Size and Compatibility: 1.75 mm PLA and ABS; other materials like Nylon, PVA, and Laywoo-D3 are experimental
  • Layer Height: 100 – 320 micron
  • X & Y Axis Resolution: 0.01 mm
  • Printer Footprint: 390 mm x 430 mm

Additional features include a 220W heated bed, precision roller bearings on all axes, and a sturdy powder coated aluminum frame. To make the MendelMax 3 even more appealing, Maker’s Tool Works is offering it for $100 cheaper than it’s predecessor, the MendelMax 2. This new printer is priced at just $1,495 in kit form.
