It’s been some time since I wrote an update about our Slic3r Prusa Edition development. 352 commits on the GitHub project to be more specific since the release of the Smooth Variable Layer Height feature. Since then we were mainly focusing on solving bugs and adding features for our Multi Material upgrade.

PrusaControl

We teased PrusaControl for quite some time already and the first version is finally here. But first let me recap before I give you a download link 🙂 We are quite good at making the hardware and firmware easy to use, simplifying and distilling everything to the core and if absolutely needed we try to […]

Hello everyone, it is time for another multimaterial upgrade (MMU) update! This time I have good news. We solved the problems I mentioned in the previous update and this means we are getting ready to ship! The solution was to use larger diameter steel tubes for cooling the filament and making a custom heatbreak together […]

As you probably know, the last 6 months since the MK2 release were quite a ride 🙂 And now PayPal blocked our funds! We cannot send money, cannot transfer them to our bank and we cannot even refund customers. This happened without warning over night and of course you don’t anticipate things like this. We cannot […]

We Czechs always like to say “Golden czech hands” when we are proud of our artisans and I am delighted that I can share one of them with you today. I bet you have read about 3D printed cars or airplane parts, but you would have never guess that you can print a functional plane […]

Slic3r Prusa Edition

I have been teasing this for quite some time, and it is finally here! We have custom flavour of Slic3r. Slic3r Prusa Edition, which is perfectly tweaked for the MK2. The main reason for our push for developing the Slic3r further is, to remove the need to fiddle with many slicing engines to get great […]
