I am in the FFF filament based printers industry for quite some time, almost 10 years since I started to play with RepRaps and later joined the project as a core developer. That is more than ⅓ of my life and if I think about it like this I get butterflies in my stomach. Over […]

When we manufacture our printers at Prusa Research, we have everything under our control. We design the hardware, electronics, software, print settings, and even the firmware. That means we basically have full control over the final print quality. Or so we thought, there is one more thing that was (up until now) outside our control […]

New firmware 3.4.0 for Original Prusa i3 MK3 and MK2.5 is out! We usually inform about firmware updates in short chapters within larger articles, but this release has so much new stuff, I decided to tell you more about it. Plus, I would like to share updates related to powder coated steel sheets availability and […]

In my previous article, I’ve shown you how to create a spare part for an office chair using OpenSCAD. And I have also encouraged the readers to try and modify the values in the code to see how they affect the model’s shape. One of OpenSCAD’s biggest strengths is the ability to easily incorporate parametric […]

A little over a month ago, I mentioned that our Multi Material Upgrade 2.0 is close to being shipped. And I’m happy to announce, that the time is now! We have just started shipping the MMU 2.0 to first customers. I’m sure you’re curious about what it can do – and I can finally reveal […]

As promised, we have prepared another article about more-or-less common 3D printing errors. In the first part, we were dealing mainly with the first layer and the ways how to make it just right. This time, we will take a closer look at difficulties related to filament extrusion and how they affect the quality of your […]

If you don’t like juggling SD cards and consider Raspberry Pi with Octoprint too difficult to set up, then we might have the right solution for you: Toshiba FlashAir SD cards. There are already various posts about these Wi-Fi enabled cards in the discussion forums and Facebook groups. However, we wanted to share our own […]

Shipping and support Multi Material 2.0 Slic3r PE 1.40.1 Inconsistent extrusion Firmware 3.3.1 Better cooling and extruder upgrade Other news Shipping and support Our shipping process has recently […]

When we travel the world to show off our 3D printers, people often ask us not only about our machines but also about the 3D printed models we usually bring with us. And, please excuse us, but we would like to pat ourselves on the back a little bit: those are some really cool prints! […]

How do you 3D print something? Well, that’s easy: get an STL model, load it into a slicer app, generate a G-code, upload it to a 3D printer and that’s it! But what if you can’t find the desired STL file in an online repository. What if you need a custom-made model? Today, we’ll look […]
