I am an Energy Commission Specialist and personally, I keep myself away from all type of electronic devices. However, recently my daughter Nilla, who is a product design engineer, bought this new 3D Prusa Printer. She enjoys working on it a lot as the printing quality is good.

But yesterday she complained about ABS filament that left excess plastic in the print bed delaying her work. She also mentioned that this printer does not use injection molding technique therefore consumes high energy. This concerned me a bit.

Hope this would help you guys in revamping it a bit!

I planned to gift this printer to my daughter as she is very creative and is involved in a lot of DIY projects in her college. As she has no knowledge of 3D printers, I decided to assemble it myself before gifting it to her. The assembling was very easy.

I also took out 2 prints to check the quality of the printer and I was really happy and impressed. The metal structure of the printer improves the printing accuracy.

This printer is very easy to adjust and control and I so happy that I ordered this one for my daughter. She also loved it and learned all about it within 2 days.

I was sent the wrong power plug, despite having mentioned it should be North America when ordering. I replied saying so and it was not addressed. I asked about a MIN TEMP warning and was told it was OK, when it definitely is not OK to try it with thermister with no connection reporting 0 degrees. (One end of the thermister connector was not crimped properly, just with the plastic, no metal.)

There are a lot of well thought out aspects to the printer, the assembly manual is a few versions behind I think. I was able to assemble the lcd panel with the listed screws, very tight fit though. Right now, the mechanical and electrical systems are working, just have to figure out how to not clog the nozzle.

There is an option in the firmware to have the fan start based on extruder temperature, that is what I am using now, The fan is needed to keep the heatsink cool not cool off the pla to harden. I think, this is all new to me.

This printer is outstanding for the users with basic 3d printing knowledge. So easy to use and gives excellent results. Has saved us a lot of money now that we can make our own new ideas and prototypes for our business. Shipped right away and worked just like we thought it would. If you are looking for a 3d printer kit this is the one.

I planned to gift this printer to my brother as he is into many DIY projects these days. I ordered it and planned to assemble it myself before gifting it to him. It hardly took me anytime to assemble it as the kit which came was in good condition and there was nothing missing from the kit.

The printer controller is integrated motherboard which is easy to connect. The printer offers many advanced solutions for limit switch position and is also very easy to adjust and control. My brother was very happy to receive it and is using it in all his projects.
