We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
This is a wide version of the Mendel Max 1.5. The total build area is 12.6" x 8.4" and is based on the large MK1 heatbeds found on ebay. In order to handle the added width of the x-axis and the additional weight on the y-axis, all of the smooth rod has been upped to 10mm. Most files are from other thingiverse users (you guys do great work). There are still several parts which I was just not happy with so I have done those myself.
12/13/12 - Changed X Ends, added X Carriage, and added Top Vertex. Shown in pic.
1/09/13 - Beefed up X-Idler to add strength for Idlers moved further out. Changed Y rod holders to make construction easier and reduce possible binding. Corrected reversed face on Y motor mount. Also added the SketchUP build file.
1/25/13 - flipped mounting holes for the X End Stepper Motor
