On this page you will find the current status of the Unit M Mondo. Our Mendel Unit is a Techzone laser-cut Mondo. So far, we have replaced the extruder (11/8/12) since the Techzone wooden extruder used springs to tension the idler. The new extruder improves this by using two bolts to tighten the idler. Eventually the plan is to use this large unit with a dual extruder. Much more information can be found at RUG/Pennsylvania/State_College/Dual_Extruder

We are having trouble getting the Techzone thermocouple and tip board working with Ramps. Currently we are using an additional thermistor attached to the hot tip, but this is causing a lower temperature to be read by the board.
