What is the Clonedel?

The Clonedel is a RepStrap design which is essentially a Prusa Mendel that is modified for easy casting.

Where did these parts come from?

If you got your parts from Metrix Create:Space, they were cast out of a two-part urethane cold-casting plastic compound, called Smooth-On Smooth Cast 325.

The original (positive) masters of these parts were printed on a Zcorp Z400 powder printer at Metrix Create:Space in Seattle around the beginning of March 2011. The design is from Mark Ganter’s lab at the University of Washington, and is a modification of the Prusa Mendel for easy casting.

These parts were printed from the designs located on our GitHub page.

How do I turn this into a printer?
