Prusa Mendel wooden printbed - Aachen edition
by bohne, published
We created 10 RepRap Prusa Mendel 3D-printers at a workshop1 in Aachen. The workshop was hosted by the FabLab Aachen2 of the Media Computing Group and supervised by many helpers, including Josef Prusa.
Since we included a PCB Heatbead Mk1 3, we had to modify the design for the "print plates"... the design was also used at the workshop in Maastricht (for 10 more RepRap Prusa Mendel printers).
The parts replace the following (listed in the Prusa Mendel BOM):
225mmÃ—225mm print top plate
140mmÃ—225mm print bottom plate

Cut it with you favorite device (lasercutter?) and mount it on your RepRap Prusa Mendel. Please consider to build your printer a bit bigger...
