You’d be surprised how many 3D models you can find on the internet are broken in some way. Modern slicers are pretty good at repairing the models without you even noticing.

A 3D printer that can print most of the parts for a whole new printer, that was the idea behind the RepRap project, from which the Prusa i3 was born. But, the more printers you want to print, the more printers you need. And of course, also a lot of space. As you may know, […]

It’s easy to stop exploring menus and buttons on a machine once you feel like you know it inside out. You don’t bother learning and using all the meal heating presets on your microwave.

Extruder movements on both MK2/S and MK3 can be quite difficult to see. The other three axes are easily visible, and honestly, it can be super mesmerizing to watch.

It has been almost 2 months since the first MK3s left the factory and it has been our most successful launch ever. For maybe the first time we managed to launch on time and sent almost 2000 before Christmas. However there were a couple of “gates” along the way, so let’s clear everything up. Compared […]

However, we’ve encountered a problem with the first […]

How K value affects the print

It has not been that long ago since we released Original Prusa i3 MK2S and some speculate that we can go for a year without another major release. However, MK2S was just a reliability upgrade and in fact MK2 is around for almost a year and a half. And we just can’t simply manage to […]

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.
