I'm a mechanical engineer based out of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. I was considering building a [email protected] Model 2, but the cost is just crazy, compared to a RepRap. Plus, I can see that RepRap's z-axis design is much better than the [email protected] design.
I use SolidWorks 2009, and am trying to get a copy of a Mendel CAD assembly that will work with that version. If you can help, I'll happily provide other formats to use as well.
