Welcome, mortal! We hope you are not easily spooked! Why? Because we have decided to open our cabinet of curiosities and bring you some Halloween-themed inspiration! Our mysterious masters of 3D printing and post-processing ghouls selected many strange items from the place, only the brave and foolish dare to enter – The Internet! (*distant thunder*). […]

Many people, who begin with 3D printing, often limit themselves to printing models downloaded from sites like Thingiverse or MyMiniFactory. There is nothing wrong with that, of course, but the 3D printing options are way wider than that. Once you get into the secrets of creating your own models, you will discover a whole new […]

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 […]

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 […]
