Some progress on mendelmax

I installed the new plastics and stepper motors and threaded rod

Its looking more like a printer now.

Still waiting on smooth rods...


  1. Hi Dust,

    I really enjoy reading your blog:)
    Can you please tell me, what the length of your z-smooth and z-threaded rods is. This would help me quite a lot.

    Thank you

  2. My Z threaded rod is 350mm, but with these lower Z parts it doesnt need to be that long, anything over 315 to 365 would be fine

    I don't have the smooth yet, but the Mendelmax site says the Z rods will be 405mm
