MendelMax Upgrade

MendelMax Shaft Couplers

Our MendelMax 3D printer hasn’t even printed anything yet (The first extruder we fitted was unfortunately far from serviceable, and we’re still awaiting some parts for the replacement – a tried and tested design) but we’ve upgrading parts on it already. The printed shaft couplers never seemed particularly robust, and since we’ve got our lathe working it seemed like an excuse to produce something useful. I’m rather pleased with the result, they should be far more rigid than the printed parts they replace, and they’ll fit in rather nicely with the black and aluminium colour scheme.
