This page is a development stub. Please enhance this page by adding information, cad files, nice big images, and well structured data!


The Open Hybrid Model (OHM) has several advantages over the generic Mendel model. Mainly, it is more flexible. The printing board is designed to easily pop off the machine without unscrewing any parts.

All STL files mentioned in this article are referring to and can be downloaded from OHM Parts section.
