I have now printed 2 complete sets of Mendel. I switched to these files after the 1st print. This breaks a Mendel down into 24 prints, averaging 2-3 hours a print. It also uses the smaller RP parts to hold down the raft for the larger prints. It works pretty good (but not as good as a heated plate). The good thing is that this design works just as good with no raft on a hot plate.
To use just export each "plate" as a separate stl, skeinforge and print. I have them separated on my computer but that's a lot of files to upload.
Also I included the non joined plates, so if you can find a way to turn it into a 23 or 22 plate print please improve on my work.
This is the easiest way to print Mendel I have found, and the beautiful part is if you are using something with a larger build plate than a Makerbot, just join four of these and you can print Mendel in 6 prints!
Much Props to Ryan P, and Cyrozap for fixing my broken files. I don't know how those got messed up, but they fixed it, and dealt with my VERY slow responce.
Honestly I was print 1 of these and not noticing it was build in the air, the other I fixed in my person sel, and never uploaded the fix. Their fixes where better than mine.
So now ALL these should work 100%. If they don't email me the fix and flame me in the comments!

So what's this mean?
We're sure Spacexula would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
