MendelMax 2 3d Printer, Fully Assembled

Call (844) 277-4683) for availability.
30.00 LBS
MendelMax 2 printers are assembled to order. The typical lead time will be 2-3 weeks, but it can vary due to demand.

Product Description

Please note: The pictures show the printer fully assembled without the filament spool. For shipping efficiency, some parts have been removed and separately packed. About 30 minutes of reassembly will be necessary to return it to operational state. Additionally, though we calibrate and extensively test every printer before shipping, some standard tuning may be necessary; this is common to all 3D printers that undergo use, though.


Orders from outside the Continental US will be canceled and refunded.

The future on your desktop

Get involved in the latest and greatest in 3D printing: the MendelMax 2. This next-generation 3D printer is based on Maxbots’ 4 years of RepRap design experience and represents the pinnacle of current 3D printer performance. It’s faster, sleeker, and easier to assemble, all while keeping the price within reach.

Every 3D printer kit starts out in pieces, so that’s where we started too. We completely re-evaluated the design from the ground up, focusing on quality and ease of assembly. That meant completely changing how the printers were manufactured. Switching from printed plastic parts to machined aluminum guaranteed consistency, strength, ease, and elegance.

We also simplified the design to require fewer pieces, less guesswork, and an easier assembly process. The total part count on the MendelMax 2 is about one-half that of its predecessor making the assembly of a MendelMax 2 kit easier than ever. You’ll have your MendelMax 2 up and running in record time.

Thanks to its elegant design, the MendelMax 2 not only has one of the largest print areas of any 3D printer in its class but also one of the smallest footprints. It is also mostly self-contained, making transporting it a breeze. The polished design is unprecedented in its price range. The MendelMax 2 has new color options: the aluminum extrusions are black, and the machined parts are available in a variety of colors. You will get the perfect printer to compliment your personal style.

Hot End Options

The MendelMax 2 is available with a choice of hot end types. The standard hot end is the extremely easy to use and reliable 3mm J-Head from Hot-Ends.com. It is the best choice for absolute beginners for people who want the easiest printing experience. We also offer the new All Metal E3D hot End. The E3D adds a new level of versatility to the printer, allowing you to print high-temp plastics such as nylon and polycarbonate in addition to the more common PLA and ABS. The E3D requires slightly more effort to get reliable prints, but it is an outstanding choice if you want the maximum flexibility in your 3d Printer. 

We offer the E3D in both 3mm and 1.75mm. We recommend 3mm for most users. Most people will find it easier and more reliable.

Graphical LCD Option

Adding the optional Graphical LCD allows you to print without your MendelMax attached to your computer. It also gives you more flexibility to change your print settings such as print speed and temperature on the fly. The additional cost includes all require parts, including the printed mount and assembly. Final attachment to the printer will be required by the end user.
