i guess if you’re reading this you’re either interested in the reprap project or your day has been very boring thus far and you don’t think it can get much worse. either way, welcome.
this blog will be a quick and dirty documentation of my reprap mendel build, just so my head doesn’t overheat and i forget things. i’ve assembled the frame already with some frame parts from oregon but i fear the other parts may have to be made from wood… great.
the electronics came in the post a couple of days ago from iprint3d at a very reasonable price. in fact, he sent them before going on holiday, doesn’t want payment for a couple of weeks, AND put a few little easter eggs in the parcel. what a gent. i can’t recommend this site highly enough, the boards are good quality and all the components are there.
6 opto-endstops soldered and ready to go, just got to rig up a test with an arduino for them next. as for the rest of the boards, i need to wait on some solder wick to get started on the SMT soldering.
i’ll crack a few pics up when i get the time later. if anyone’s willing to make the remaining RP parts for a reasonable price, get in touch at email@example.com and we can talk.
cheers for reading,
