Mendel Filament guide by jwilson Nov 19, 2012


Fillament guide for a RepRap Mendel for a spool mounted above.

Uses a PTFE(Teflon) insert to guide the filament at low friction, i will add a printed version of this at a later date but i strongly advise using PTFE!

This helps keep a nice bend radius and stop you damaging your fillament!
