Hi Guys,

im new in the world of 3d printing,
and i wanted to build a prusa mendel at first.

My question is :

where should i buy all the parts (i live in germany ,so better a shop who is in europe in cause of the taxes),
and what do i need exactly? what electronic parts with which firmware ? and espacially where i can order the extruder
inclusive the heath bed and the nozzle?

Thanks uroc

Hi & welcome

I'm also in DE and have found GRRF to be good and reliable.

I bought my hot-end from reprap-fab, who is also based in DE and I was also impressed with the result.

Hope this helps,
Viel glück!

thanks for the fast answer. :-)

should i order a complete kit or every part seperate.
the thing is that on this site the parts are very expensive.
do you know a shop where they are less expensive?

cause my budget is by 500 euro.

by the way
by which parts is it important to buy expensive i mean:
is a good noozle an indicator for a good result?

Thanks Uroc

You should be asking in the German RUG (since you live in Germany).

I also have the complete Wade hot-end from reprap-fab and have no problems with it.

A reliable hot-end is important for not having to work on your extruder all the time.
The Wades (or different versions thereof) are the current favorite for the extrude mechanics.
