Product Description

These are the latest parts and vitamins for the Prusa Mendel. The Prusa Mendel is the most common RepRap printer and it's the best printer for new reprappers. This kit includes everything you need to build a working RepRap and with NWRepRap's free support, you will get it working. The Prusa 2 has an effective print area of 7" x 7" x 5". It can achieve a print height of 0.1mm to 0.3mm and it's accuracy is between 0.01mm and 0.02mm.

The nuts and bolts in this kit are metric. By supporting metric components, we encourage manufacturers to migrate to metric which is superior to SAE measurements.

Some of the parts in this kit have been upgraded and the assembly videos don't reflect these upgrades. If you have any trouble, call our excellent support staff and they will help you!

We provide a 90 day warranty on everything and we don't ask questions. If a part or component breaks or if you break it on accident, let us know and we'll ship a replacement as quickly as we can at no charge.

Support is free as well and we like to think we're good at it. If you have any questions, call or email us between Monday and Friday (8am to 5pm PST) and we'll be here to prove it to you. You can also take a look at our support page where you might find what you need.

I'm only at step 15 in the video series describing how to put the thing together. So far I'm happy with one exception. The parts have changed since the videos were made, I've been able to get around this so far. Step 14 had me stymied today (a Saturday) so I called the support number. To my surprise I actually got a person on the line. He was able to point me to a few pictures to help me out and I did make it through to the next step. I would give 5 stars for the experience so far however there needs to be documentation included for the places the videos differ from the currently shipping version of the kit.

[Edit] I've completed the build using the videos as my guide and had to call support a couple of times. If you get this kit note that the RAMPS 1.4 connections are not shown in the videos however they are pretty straight forward and looking at some pictures and the wiring diagrams I was able to get it hooked up. Every time I called support I got a human being, which is a GREAT thing these days. I think I blew up the motor controller board (because I wired the power supply incorrectly, make sure to use the square plug wires with two green wires and two black wires from the PS) so I'm about to find out if the 90 day warranty is correct. It took me five days from start to finish working through several steps per day.

[Edit 2] The new RAMPS board is on the way, they gave me no problems at all with the replacement so I'm changing my rating to 5 stars.

[Edit 3] I've found that putting blue painter's tape on the heat bed glass fixes many issues. The glass I got with the kit was warped so I went to lowes and picked up a small piece of flat glass.

I ordered this kit directly from NWReprap and received a very well packed shipment in a short time. Complete video and illustrated instructions are available on-line and almost MUST be followed realtime while assembling the kit. A number of improvements that have been made in the design throw a curve since the videos and instructions are behind reality but reference to the RepRap forums plus a little common sense will pull you through the rough spots.
The quality of the parts provided are very good with few exceptions. The kit went together smoothly, generally, and the final steps of downloading the software and making the necessary changes and additions, though a bit mysterious and requiring quite a few "rewind and replay" iterations, resulted in a fairly complex machine working properly THE FIRST TIME! It's very important to go through the calibration steps carefully as presented in the videos.
Response from NWRepRap via e-mail has been very quick and always helpful. A wonderful exception to the general lack of service we become used to. I've been having a great time designing my own parts on the OpenSCAD (Computer Assisted Design) program on my computer and then downloading them to print. My friends and neighbors are impressed.

This kit included everything needed, plus some extra parts. It was very neatly organized, which made assembly much easier. I had a problem with one of my motors, and NWReprap sent me a replacement immediately and at no charge. I would not hesitate to buy this again, and i will certainly continue to buy products fron NWReprap.

I bought this printer kit because it was available for immediate shipment. I had been considering the more expensive Makergear M2 kit, but they were back ordered for two weeks, plus it was more expensive.

That said, the Prusa Mendel Iteration 2 from NWRepRap arrived as promised. I generally prefer to work from written instructions, but I was able to assemble the printer using the on-line videos from NWRepRap without the need to call factory support. I was able to figure out the differences between the machine shown in the video and the kit I was shipped on my own.

The most difficult part of the assembly was leveling the bed. I discovered that the threaded rod frame is not that rigid. The printer must sit on a flat surface for good results. The instructions for leveling the bed did not work well for me. I got the best results by laying the glass on the heat bed but not clipping it in place. Next I did a rough adjustment of the Z-axis limit switch. Then I moved the carriage to each corner and adjusted the nuts on each corner of the red heat bed until the glass was just touching the hot end nozzle and a bit of resistance was felt when sliding the glass a bit. If the settings were not correct when going back to a previous adjustment, it meant that the surface the machine was on still was not flat enough.

To get USB drivers that worked, I had to go to the Arduino web site and download drivers from there, the drivers on the NWRepRap site did not work. HOWEVER, the later version of the Ardunio software itself would not compile the code. So I used version 0022 from the NWRepRap site and I was able to configure, compile and upload the firmware to the Arduino board without further problems.

The shaft couplings for the Z axis motors were problematic.
