Brutis Mini-Mendel based on the Prusa Mendel
Brutis the Alpha months
Long before there was a Huxley, a re-design of Mini-Mendel was started by Spacexula. A great deal of time and effort went into Brutis with assembly videos on utube, Cad design in HeeksCad etc. These files are available below. They have not been tested, or even printed. They became Orphaned when the very simple Prusa Mendel was previewed. Have picked up the project with a new focus. - Prober
