RepRapPro Mendel build notes day two

Sun, Jan 13, 2013
Back to part one. Today I started off by measuring everything and tightening the nuts. Now it’s time for a diagonal rod on the bottom of the printer and a z-axle rod. To adjust the printer so that it doesn’t rock, the manual recommends placing it on a thick kitchen bench. I have a glass stove so I placed it there. It should be level enough. There are two examples for adjusting the Z and Y rods in the instructions.

RepRapPro build notes

Sat, Jan 12, 2013
These build notes were written Swedish first. The other day a got a package that was a bit heavier than all the electronics I’ve been buying lately. It’s a box full of nuts, washers, rods and plastic parts. My intention is to have them look like the picture above when I’m done. Before starting the build I read through all about putting the frame together at the RepRap wiki.
