I have done a lot of research (like many before me) before deciding on my very first RepRap machine - a version of MendelMax 1.5+. There are so many variations and options. Being an engineer at heart, I decided to go with this set, because many of the modifications made to the original parts make total sense. Everything came packaged nicely and I still can't believe this stuff is actually printed from plastic wire with some hot nozzle and a processor that's slower than my wrist watch. The quality is excellent and it gives you that nice and fuzzy feeling that everything will fit just right, a crucial reinsurance that you really need on your first build, especially if you've never made any robotic contraption before and if you've never dealt with Open Source hardware, where too much flexibility and lack of "for dummies" documentation makes your head spin. I still can't figure out half of the stuff (stuck at assembling my electronics right now), but I promise you that once you finish building this thing and get how it works (this is important, you need to understand how and why), you'll become an instant expert and all of a sudden it will feel easy. I highly recommend this set. It was a blast to build and the quality of every part - impeccable.

The parts arrived way before i expected them to and they were in excellent condition. I would like to complement the service as the owner phoned me personally and stated that the extruder had some blemishes and offered to replace it if i had any problems with it. As i had purchased an all aluminum extruder and was not going to use the printed one i said no problem. But he was obviously willing to stand behind his product. I will be purchasing more from here defiantly.

I initially made the mistake of ordering my printed parts from another source which took almost 3 months for them to fill the order. Aside from being mismatched parts, they were all very poor quality. I finally got wise and ordered printed parts from ultibots. The print quality is the best I've seen, and my order was shipped within a day or so. Brad even called me personally to make sure he was sending the correct style parts for the type of bearings I was using. All in all, I am very pleased with ultibots service and will continue to source my parts here.

Excellent quality and some nice extras/upgrades (as mentioned in other reviews).
I purchased my hardware elsewhere but in hindsight I wish I bought everything from Brad - very helpful and quick to ship products out.

I looked at all the MM 1.5 plastic parts kits out there and this one looked the best. I spoke to Brad on the phone and he is very helpful and easy to work with. The print quality is very good. I was impressed with the upgrades that come with this kit such as ends stops, fan ducts etc.

I searched around quite a bit before deciding on these printed parts. The set includes all the printed parts needed for the Mendelmax 1.5+ build and Brad even adds a few extras that you'd otherwise pay extra for, like the LCD case and power supply shield. The print quality is excellent and important parts have been tweaked to make them better.
All prices are in USD.
