Mixtape Mendel is a project with many goals covering differing disciplines. The main goal is to use existing tools and designs, throw in a bit of my own work and bring it all together to make a simpler, faster, more precise 3D printer. The real hypothesis is going to be something along the lines of studying exactly how high of a positioning and filament resolution we can achieve now.
Really it comes down to William Gibson’s idea of the future being here, just not evenly distributed. 😀
