This is what I plan to build, taking ideas from
reprap in general and mendel prusa in particular.
My intent is to use common hardware materials found in hardware stores everywhere. Instead of using threaded rods for the frame as is the case with the Prusa I will use mdf board of various thicknesses. I will also use linear bearings of type SC8UU on the smoothrods of all the axes. For electronics I will be using RAMPS v1.4 with Arduino Mega 1280.
