    Anyone else making their own printers? I started building a Mendel90 kit last week.Click image for larger version.

    Here it is with the heated bed installed. Just the X axis to install, then wire it up!

    I built a Mendel90 last year. Still going strong, you'll like it!
    I used MDF for my build. It's not as 'pretty' but I built a small enclosure
    underneath it to house the electronics and LCD (Still have to move the electronics)

    Keep us posted on your progress!

    P.S. Where about in BC are you?
    I'm on the Island in Victoria.

    Cool. As you can see this is the kit from Nop Head with the dibond panels. I'd love to make a second one sourcing everything from scratch, and use Mic6 tooling plate for the structure, with an E3D hot end.

    Where are you getting your filament from? I've ordered a wack from Filaments.ca I've heard they are quite reputable.
