This is the first post documenting the build of my first 3D printer.
I read a recent post on the RepRap blog describing how much easier it is to source and build, specifically the Prusa version. From what I understand this version is it's used only for 3D printing while the original Mendel can also be used for a CNC machine.
The first part was finding all the parts, probably the biggest change from a traditional Mendel is I purchased some molded parts instead of finding some parts that were printed. The other components or 'vitamins' took me about 3 days to find in stock over various suppliers.
Now it's a matter of waiting for all my shipments to arrive :)
