3DPrintMi combines the minimalistic, open frame style of the Printrbot/Wallace with the fixed Y Gantry system of the Mendel. The printed parts are designed to be produced rapidly, efficiently and assembled easily. A primary goal for this printer was to incorporate the maximum number of printed parts, thus enabling self replication. Built from the ground up, this Reprap requires very little tooling and does not need specially made parts (e.g. lasercut pieces) for it to function.
My first reprap was printed off the Printrbot+ and was dubbed the "Mutant Printrbot". The first iteration of my printer had several design flaws, which I corrected in the second iteration, named the '''3DPrintMi'''.
Here are the .STL files for printing, the .STEP files for CAD viewing and the BOM for part sourcing.
