The 3DMakerWorld Artifex is an open source desktop 3D printer. The printer's frame is based on the frame of MendelMax-2.0, and the design was heavily modified for printability, strength, wire management, vibration reduction, filament feeding, and compatibility with other features in the extruder and heated build platform.

As an open source 3D printer, the 3DMakerWorld Artifex was designed with the inspiration from many others' work in the open source 3D printing community. Please see our acknowledgements at http://www.3dmakerworld.com/artifex/acknowledgements.

UPDATE: The source files are now available at: https://github.com/3dmakerworld/artifex.

Very nice Mendelmax 2 remix!

I'm planning to build the Artifex because te lack of laser cut parts.
In the user manual I couldn't find the hardware discription/specs. of the lead screw, igus rail and carts. Are these the same as the Mendelmax 2.0?

Did you figured out the specs of lead screw rails and carts?

Is it possible to use a standard prusa i3 x axis? or is your spacing between the z-rods unique?

The center-to-center distance between two Z-axis leadscrews is 293mm.
