The 3D printer PRUSA I3 MK3S by Josef Prusa – made in Czech Republic – is a high-performance top player in its category. We bought the older version which costs a bit above 700 euros. The costs were covered from personal budgets we have yearly available to use for cultural, sports and other activities.

The package arrived – with all parts to be assembled in own organisation, except the main board. The printer is an open source printer. You are able to print all plastic parts of the printer using the bought printer. What you need to buy are only the metal parts and you can build your next Prusa Research 3D printer by your own.

Miloš and Michal spent 2 days using all the screws and nuts and putting the printer together. „The calibration succeeded on the first try which was a little miracle“, both say. „It is like lego for the big guys.“

We praise the 3D printer for its printing velocity, working quietly, having a filament detection and a more solid body. With its magnetic heatbed with replaceable spring steel print sheet you can simply “click it off” from the platform, so you do not need to remove it with a spatula or something similar.

What do we want to do with the new printer? Mainly build build build and have fun in evolving our ideas and creativity.
