Bipolar NEMA 17 Stepper Motors

For each RepRap Mendel MAX 1.5 DIY kit we include 5 motors, they are the driving force of each printer. The most important feature of each printer is their durability and reliability. Bipolar NEMA 17 Stepper Motors were created and manufactured to fulfill this task. They are both ideal as drive X, Y, Z and as an extruder motor!

Furthermore, they have four pin cables which enable to adjust them to your specific requirements. Our 3D printing experts have researched and found the best stepper motors specially for you.


Plastic Parts Set (optional)

It is a set of plastic parts designed and created specifically for your 3D printer - Mendel MAX 1.5. Parts were printed with a special material that provides the perfect combination of strength and flexibility. We own the great look high quality print. Orange color combined with black aluminum profiles makes our printer look amazing! Plastic Parts Set is an optional stuff that you can add it to your order for only €89!


LCD and SD Card (optional)

By purchasing our LCD panel with universal SD card slot you get the possibility to use your printer without a PC. Now, the only thing which you will need to start printing are g-codes stored on the SD card. The display screen will allow you to choose the right design, but also to see the level of printing progress or extruder temperature. You will be able to control the most important and the current information. Have the power to control the printing speed, extruder work, frequency of the motor steps, cooling settings or you can just pause the printing process during its work! It is easy to connect and very useful.


G3D Pre-assembled Hotend

Based on the Budaschnozzle 1.1 project this is the best Hotend construction on the 3D printers market! Although, to improve it even more we decided to make some modifications. Therefore, the wooden parts were replaced with more enduring, specialistic acrylic parts.


Frame Set

Black profiles included in the kit was made from high-grade aluminum, so that the structure is very light and looks stylish. In addition, the kit contains all the necessary elements of the framework such as: threaded and smooth rods, bearings, screws, nuts, washers etc.


G3D Cooling Plate and G3D Fan Splitter

Every electronic device needs proper cooling. With G3D Cooling Plate your RAMPS is safe from overheating. Stepper Drivers in your printer can work smoothly while outputting the maximum power. Currently, nobody offers this kind of solution. You will be able to avoid all the confusion related to your electronics overheating.

Moreover, G3D Fan Splitter is a perfect solution for people who want to upgrade their printer or increase its efficiency without the risk of overheating. G3D Fan Splitter has a series of inputs which allow to connect up to 15 cooler fans in order to effectively protect your printer from excessive heat. Additionally, instead of those cooler fans, you can plug in other equipment, such as LEDs or whatever else you want!


Heatbed MK2a PCB

Heatbed MK2a is currently the best construction of its kind on the market and it was proven by thousands of satisfied users. The maximum temperature which can be reached is 120°C and the device heats up from 0°C to 100°C in 5 minutes at a low voltage of 12V. Heatbed MK2 is indispensable when it comes to ABS printing but not only. Check it out yourself!


PLA Filament

PLA is the official build material for RepRap based printers and is compatible with all 3D printers on the market which use 1.75 mm filament. PLA is a bioplastic, meaning it is made from renewable natural resources. It is also biodegradable in commercial compost facility.


This is PLA4043D extruded into 1.75 mm filament. This is a wonderful build material. It has minimal warp when cooling. The pigments used in our color PLA are all bio-friendly and designed for use with PLA.


Ramps 1.4 Electronics with SD Ramps

RAMPS 1.4. is a failure-free and proven constructionwhich is even easier to assemble after we have implemented some modifications during the production process such as built-in SD card slot from with which you are able to print your projects without using the computer!

RAMPS Electronics and RAMPS 1.4. are already fully assembled and ready to use. NO DIY, just plug and play. Moreover, RAMPS 1.4. make it possible to install new useful elements like LCD screen, cooling plate and more. We have also foreseen the needs of more advanced users of 3D printing so that RAMPS 1.4 has the ability to support even 2 extruders.

The option of micro stepping gives you an extra tool to calibrate the speed and accuracy of printing. The set can be powered with voltages and current ranging from 12V-5 A to 20-11 A. Micro stepping is an optional feature which indicates the current status of the control unit or warns against hazards such as overheating.

What it is?

MendelMax 1.5 is an open-source RepRap 3D printer designed by Kludingeer. Its construction was strongly modernized by changing threaded rods to aluminum profiles. This is how a printer with an extremely stable construction was created. Machine is also very easy to install – ideal for those who want to start their adventure with 3D printing at low cost. An additional advantage of Mendel Max 1.5 is the possibility of introducing next modifications in the spirit of open-source. This is a great advantage for home-grown inventors and professional printers. The issues of aesthetics didn’t remain indifferent for the designers. The machine looks sleek and elegance, fit perfectly in all kind of interiors. Mendel Max 1.5 works using two currently most popular types of filament: PLA and ABS. That gives the possibility to fit material features to print exact type of project. This version allows to print items with maximum dimensions of 185 mm x 185 mm x 180 mm. Perfect for medium-size as well as small size creations; always keeping the same accuracy of the details.

Why Mendel MAX?

It is currently the best Rep Raps machine on the market. Evidence of this is the popularity in Europe, the United States, Asia and South America it gained thanks to its compatibility. All of the parts used in the classical Rep Raps are suitable for MendelMax 1.5. What's more, unlike the previous machines, installation or replacement of parts is extremely easy and doesn’t take more than 3 minutes!
