Prusa Research Original Prusa i3 MK3S+ 3D Printer Kit
The Original Prusa i3 MK3S+ is the successor of the award-winning Original Prusa i3 MK2/S 3D printer. Our previous model is the winner of the 3D Printer Shootout 2017 and 2018 in prestigious MAKE: Magazine and for more than a year, it's the best desktop 3D printer according to 3Dhubs.com Trends. MK2S is also The Best 3D Printer for 2018 in "Workhorse" category on 3DHubs.com Guide with score 9.3 (the highest rated printer overall).
But the new MK3S+ is even better! With the rebuilt extruder, a plethora of sensors and the new magnetic MK52 heatbed with replaceable PEI spring steel print sheet we believe that we've developed our best 3D printer ever!
This listing is a DIY KIT for self-assembly. For first-timers, it takes approximately 8 hours. to assemble.
We are also offering Prusa i3 MK3S+ 3D Printers (Assembled) with Smooth Sheet, with Textured Sheet, or with Both Sheets.
You can also select one of 20 official Prusament PETG colours to accompany the Black parts, including:
The printer also comes with a free sample of Prusament PLA ~ 2x25 g (random colour), plus Haribo Gummy Bears (100g) too.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, current leading time to shipping is about 2-3 weeks.
The new MK52 Magnetic HeatBed holds a replaceable alloy spring steel sheet with a PEI surface. You can choose between two types of sheets - smooth PEI sheet (default option, already available) and textured powder coated PEI (this will be available later).
With the MK3S+ we are introducing the reworked Y axis from extrusion. It provides the same rigidity as some other printers while providing the sleek look of our milled Dural frame. The frame is also optimized to add 10 mm of Z height totaling at 210 mm.
SILENT & FASTER PRINTING
Thanks to the new Trinamic2130 drivers and Noctua fan, the MK3S+ is extremely quiet in the stealth mode. But the MK3S+ is quieter than 99 % of the available printers, even in the Normal mode. In normal mode, we have also increased the printing speed. Now you can achieve more than 200 mm/s!
Have you ever tripped over the extension cord and lost a 20-hours print? MK3S+ will save you! The printer can fully recover from the loss of power. It detects power interruption and shuts down the heatbed and extruder heating. After restoring the power, you can continue with printing.
Our optical filament encoder detects the presence of a filament and its movement. The MK3S+ can recognize, that filament is running out, pause the print and ask the user to insert a new spool. It can also detect stuck filament and offer the user an option to clean the nozzle.
RECOVER SHIFTED LAYERS
The new EINSY RAMBo motherboard with Trinamic drivers not only makes the MK3+ silent but it also can detect skipped steps and layer shifting. This is a big step forward in the reliability of the printer and the user comfort. You can say goodbye to ugly prints!
The extruder has now upgraded with Bondtech drive gear. It grips the filament from both sides, increasing the push force and making the printer more reliable. This is useful for flexible filaments. Also, the print fan now cools part from two sides, increasing the overall performance.
P.I.N.D.A. 2 PROBE
MK3S+ has two new thermistors. The first one measures ambient temperature on the electronics, preventing MINTEMP errors in rooms with 15°C or less. The second one is embedded in the SuperPINDA probe to compensate for temperature drift. So the first layer will always be spot on!
E3D V6 NOZZLE
E3D V6 is market-leading all metal hotend well known for its high-temperature performance. The MK3+ utilizes a developed together with E3D. The reliability has proved in our upgrade and continues to deliver great performance in surprisingly small form factor.
