This is especially true for the Igus bushings used for the Z axis.These sections are highlighted in green on the relevant pages.These pages are the complete instructions for building, commissioning and using the Rep Rap Pro Ltd Tricolour Mendel and Mono Mendel. Like all Rep Rap machines, Rep Rap Pro Mendels are fully open-source. All the design files and software are available from the Rep Rap Pro Ltd Github repository.For the most part, the construction of the Tricolour is the same as for the Mono.At various points there are small tasks that you need to do for the Tricolour.Before you buy anything, here is some important information you should know, including a cost breakdown at the end: This "Mendel materials procurement" page assumes you want to build a Mendel, and can get hold of a set of reprapped Mendel parts (perhaps produced on an identical Mendel, or on a Darwin, or on one of the Rep Straps machines out there).If you can't get hold of a set of reprapped Mendel parts, or you want to build some other Rep Rap variant, skip this page and go to the Parts Supplies page.
