It’s been a pretty long time since my last update on the Prusa Research status and I have loads of great news, so let’s get to it! 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 […]

Since 2012 I’m working hard (along with all colleagues from Prusa Research) to develop 3D printers that are easy to use, reliable, versatile and affordable. The Original Prusa i3 has become well-known all over the world. But now it’s time to take another step. I repeatedly said that print quality for FDM is peaking and […]

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 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 […]

First MK3s are already shipped to those who ordered in the very first hours after the release (The rest will follow according to schedule everyone has in theirs eshop accounts so there is no need to check it with our support). However, we’ve encountered a problem with the first […]

How K value affects the print

It has been 4 months since the latest stable firmware release but even with MK3 (first units will be out before the end of November, new orders will ship approximately in February 2018) already released we continue to improve our firmware and 3.1.0 might be the biggest update in 2017. This time we included a […]

Original Prusa i3 MK3

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.
